These two teams have not met prior to this matchup on the hardwood.
Monmouth is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Northeastern is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
I’m going to back Monmouth and the points here. Northeastern’s been struggling as of late, and while a lot of those games are coming against the top teams in the CAA this season, the reality is that the odd time that the Huskies are favored at home, they’re still not covering. Monmouth’s red hot right now seemingly out of nowhere, and as crazy as it is to say, against teams on the same level as Monmouth, like Northeastern, I’m not trying to step in front of the Hawks right now. Give me Monmouth and the points.
