The Vermont Catamounts go on the road to oppose the Albany Great Danes in an America East tilt.

The Great Danes rode the production of Joe Cremo who led all scorers with 31 points and six boards on 8-12 from the floor and 11-14 at the line while David Nichols added 18 points, five pulls and six assists on 6-12. Travis Charles gave Albany 14 points and Greg Stire chipped in with ten points.

Vermont  are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and Vermont  are 3-9-2 ATS in their last 14 vs. America East. Albany  are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. America East and Albany are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games.

Albany has looked good in recent weeks but I expect the Catamounts to be prepared for anything…

Pick:
Vermont -3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
