The Monmouth Hawks have been the better team all season long, and that includes road wins over Cincinnati and Pitt. The Yale Bulldogs go through serious droughts on the offensive side, and now it’s starting to impact their defense, as they’re giving up 80-plus points a lot. I’ll gladly side with Monmouth and this small line.
