The Hofstra Pride and Delaware Blue Hens meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Bob Carpenter Center.

The Hofstra Pride are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.4 rebounds per game. The Hofstra Pride have won six of their last eight road games.

The Delaware Blue Hens could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Delaware Blue Hens are averaging 70.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 71 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Ryan Allen is averaging 16.3 points and 2.4 rebounds while Eric Carter is averaging 16.2 points and 2.4 assists. Ithiel Horton is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Anderson is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Delaware Blue Hens are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.1 percent from the free throw line. The Delaware Blue Hens are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.4 rebounds per game. The Delaware Blue Hens have split their last six home games.

The Pride are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 road games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Blue Hens are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Delaware and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 9-4-1 in Blue Hens last 14 home games. The over is 6-1 in Pride last 7 overall.

Hofstra enters this contest playing much better basketball and already beat Delaware by 45 points back in December. Hofstra is also a healthy 10-4 ATS on the road this season where it wins its games by an average of 5.5 points. The Delaware Blue Hens just can't put together 40 minutes of consistent basketball and have a long history of getting beat up by Hofstra, losing nine of the last 10 meetings overall. Based on the form of both teams, Delaware is likely going to have a hard time keeping up offensively. 

Pick:
Hofstra -6.5
