LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and  are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win. Over is 5-1 in Fairleigh Dickinson Knights last 6 home games and under is 7-3 in Knights last 10 Thursday games.

The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights have been highly explosive at home this season and enter this game in better form offensively overall. Fairleigh Dickinson also took LIU Brooklyn down to the wire a couple of weeks ago on the road. At home, the Knights should be able to get the job done while covering the small number.

Pick:
Fairleigh Dickinson Knights -4

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.
