DEL -1.5 O/U 136

TV: ESPN+

The Delaware Blue Hens (9-0) will visit the George Washington Colonials (5-2) at the Charles E. Smith Center. Delaware is undefeated through their first nine games with wins against mid-tier mid-major opponents. Let’s not take anything away from this run, though. Being 9-0 is special and shouldn’t be overlooked.

Delaware is led by Nate Darling who is averaging 22.5 points per game while shooting 50 percent from the field. Forward Justyn Mutts has contributed with 9.7 rebounds per game this season.

The Blue Hens are scoring 77 points per game and allowing just 63 points from the opposition. They’re shooting almost 50 percent from the field, at 48.9 percent.

George Washington is just trying to get back to .500 basketball. They previously defeated Boston University at home by one point and lost to South Carolina before then. They also defeated Evansville who famously beat Duke on the road. All of their losses have been close losses. George Washington certainly has more talent than Delaware but when you’re hot, you’re hot.

The Colonials are led by Armel Potter who is averaging 14 points per game along with 4.3 assists per game. Arnaldo Toro is averaging 10.4 rebounds per game as well. George Washington allows more points than they score. They average 67.1 and give up 68.1 per game. That’s exactly why they’re a .500 ball club.

 

Blue Hens are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games following three or more consecutive home games.

Colonials are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

Over is 6-0 in Blue Hens last 6 overall.

Under is 4-0 in Colonials last 4 games following a straight up win.

It’s really hard to fade the Delaware Blue Hens but George Washington is the better team. The magic has to run out soon and George Washington, at home, would be the team to do it. Final Score Predictions: George Washington wins and covers ATS, 65-55.
