The Charleston Cougars and the Monmouth Hawks meet in college basketball action from the OceanFirst Bank Center on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
The Charleston Cougars are massive 21.5-point road favorites while the over/under is set at 142.5 points.
Neither side have anyone listed on the injury report coming into this game, so barring any last minute announcements, both sides will be at full strength coming into this game.
These two teams have not met prior to this season.
Charleston is 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 road games while the under is 13-3 in their last 16 games overall. Monmouth is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-14 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m backing Charleston here. Monmouth’s been an absolute disaster this season and they’ve been getting blown out left and right this season. This is a big number to give up anywhere, even with a road team, but we’ve seen nothing from Monmouth against lesser opponents to suggest that they’ll be able to keep themselves in this game. Give me Charleston in a rout.
