Maryland-Eastern Shore is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Howard is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win by 20+ points.
I’m backing the over here. Offense hasn’t been a problem for either of these teams down the stretch and I don’t expect it to be here either as both of the regular season meetings between these two teams flew over the number. I think this one has potential to be another high-scoring battle, so give me the over here.
