Matchup History

Merrimack’s won both all time meetings between these two teams after a 75-60 win over the Hawks back on November 23rd, 2021.


Merrimack is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS win. Hartford is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games while the under is 9-1 in their last 10 home games.


I’m backing Merrimack here. There’s simply no backing Hartford as the Hawks just look like they’re playing out the string and are just taking it all in one last time before making the drop to D-III. Merrimack has been playing some solid ball as of late and I just don’t see any reason to step in front of Merrimack with Hartford here. Give me the Warriors here.
