Matchup History

Coppin State’s 59-57 win back on March 9th, 2022, made it five straight wins and four straight covers head-to-head with Howard.


Coppin State is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 11-5 in their last 16 games following an ATS loss. Howard is 16-33-1 ATS in their last 50 home games against a team with a losing road record and 3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m backing Howard here. I get the case to be made for Coppin State as the Eagles have had success in this matchup, but this season, the Eagles have been getting run over by the top-end teams in the conference and Howard right now, definitely fits that bill. I think this is just a tough spot for Coppin State and I look for Howard to break out of their funk against Coppin State with a win and cover here.
