The Morgan State Bears and Delaware State Hornets face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at Memorial Hall Dover. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Morgan State vs Delaware State prediction.

A Bad Season for Morgan State

It has been a bad season for Morgan State and coming into this game with a 9-15 record overall. Even though it has been a bad season, they have shown some signs of life and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Maryland Eastern Shore, they scored 70 points and ended up winning by five points. Wynston Tabbs had a strong game putting up 14 points. Morgan State is averaging 72.9 points while their defense is giving up 77.9 points per game. Tabbs had been the top player averaging 16.4 points while shooting 42.1 percent from the field. 

Will Delaware State’s Defense Be Good Again?

Delaware State hasn’t played very well this season but in the last game they sure looked good. Delaware State scored only 66 points against Coppin State, but the defense gave up only 56 points and that led to the victory. Delaware State on the season is averaging 70.5 points while their defense is giving up 71.1 points per game. The defense is ranked 162nd in the league and they are going to need the defense to be good again. Delaware State will face South Carolina State after this game.

Morgan State vs Delaware State Betting Prediction 

Delaware State’s defense looked good in the last game, but I don’t think they are going to do the same thing here. Morgan State has won three games in a row and the offense has been good heading into this one. Morgan State is averaging 72.9 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Delaware State won’t keep up and Morgan State will get the job done. Back Delaware State against the spread.
