Colgate went 3-3 over their first six games this year, notching wins over Northeastern, SUNY Poly and Syracuse along the way. Since then it’s been a 1-5 run with losses to Niagara, Northeastern, Pittsburgh and St. John’s. 

In the St. John’s game last weekend, the Raiders were outscored 46-35 in the first half. Colgate posted just 29 points from there in an 82-64 loss. Jack Ferguson led the way on 23 points, and Keegan Records put up 11 points with six boards. 

Over on the Monmouth side, they lost their opener to Charlotte then took out Towson, Lehigh, Saint Joseph’s, Princeton, Cincinnati, Niagara and Canisius in the next seven. The Hawks then lost to St. John’s before wins versus Pittsburgh and Yale. 

Matched up against Yale on Tuesday, the Hawks posted a 41-25 edge in the first half and were able to hang on for the 69-60 win. Walker Miller finished on 16 points with nine boards, and Shavar Reynolds put up 15 points. 

Monmouth is 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 at home and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 after an ATS win. The Hawks are 7-0 ATS in their last seven Sunday games. 

Meanwhile, the Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six overall. Colgate is 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stick with Monmouth. The Hawks have been playing some pretty good basketball this year so far. The Hawks have failed to hit 70 points in four of their last six games, but they’re 5-1 in that stretch thanks to some solid defense and ball control. 

As for the Raiders, they’ve been a little spotty lately scoring themselves, and they’ve also given up 70 or more points in five of their last six outings. If Monmouth can post a good offensive game here I think they’ll be fine on a cover.
