Charleston’s 92-76 win over Hofstra back on March 6th, 2022, snapped a three-game win streak for Hofstra in this head-to-head matchup.
Hofstra is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. Charleston is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I’m leaning towards Charleston here. The Cougars haven’t been as much of a sure thing as of late when it comes to laying these decent-sized numbers, but they’re still the best team in the conference by a mile and I don’t see Hofstra being able to keep pace for a full 40 minutes. I think this game is tight early on and maybe into the half, but I look for Charleston to pull away in the second half and win by double-digits. I’ll lay the points with Charleston here.
