The Terriers are 6-2-2 ATS in their last 10 road games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Eagles are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 13-6 in Terriers last 19 overall. The over is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 home games. The underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Boston Univ. Terriers aren’t exactly world beaters, but they’ve shown more life this season and easily have the best player in this matchup. The American Eagles have major issues on the defensive side, and the fact they’ve played just one game since December 22 doesn’t help. American has to be struggling with chemistry given the long layoff. It’s Boston and the chalk or pass for me.
