The Elon Phoenix and the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks meet in college basketball action from the Trask Coliseum on Monday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The UNC-Wilmington Seahawks are heavy favorites at home laying 14.5 points with a moneyline price of -1205. The over/under for this game is set at 137.5.


Neither team has anyone listed on the injury report so both should be coming into this one healthy barring any last minute announcements.

Matchup history

UNC-Wilmington won the last matchup by a final score of 81-66 back on January 4th, making it back-to-back wins in this matchup for UNC-Wilmington.


Elon is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the under is 49-24-1 in their last 74 road games. UNC-Wilmington is 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 games overall and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 home games while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record.


I like UNC-Wilmington a lot, and the Seahawks are the better team and the only team I trust to do anything once we get into conference play. However, Elon’s done a great job in terms of covering these big numbers in conference play and I’m thinking they could do it again here. I don’t expect the Phoenix to win outright, but I could see a backdoor cover here where Elon loses something like 72-59 or 74-61. Give me Elon and the points.
