USF Bulls vs Hofstra Pride Prediction
The USF Bulls have some showing and proving to do after losing to Maine as a big favorite. USF is a below average offensive team and has no outside shooting to speak of. The Hofstra Pride are one of the best offensive teams in the country and top-50 in every major statistical category. This feels like a complete mismatch and a hard game for USF to keep up. I’ll lay the chalk with Hofstra.
