Matchup History

Central Connecticut State’s 75-65 win over Hartford back on December 18th, 2021, snapped Hartford’s two-game win streak in the head-to-head matchup.


Central Connecticut State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games while the under is 9-1 in their last 10 road games against a team with a losing home record. Hartford is 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games by a loss by 20 or more points while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m backing the under here. I don’t trust either of these teams offensively, as CCSU is scoring 64 PPG in their last 5 games while Hartford’s logging 61.2 PPG in their last 5. This to me just feels like a first to 60 wins kind of game, so give me the under in this one.
