(865) Delaware vs. Hofstra (866)
PICK: pinnacle @ 3 DEL (-107)
DATE: March 9, 2020 - 6:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Al McMordie
EVALUATION: Loss (-1070) - Final Score HOF 75 at DEL 61
At 6 pm eastern, our selection is on the Delaware Blue Hens + the points over Hofstra. The Pride come into this game on a 10-1 SU/ATS win streak, including back to back blowout wins over James Madison (97-81) and Drexel (61-43). And they also blew out today's opponent -- Delaware -- by 16 points in the last meeting, 16 days ago. The knee-jerk reaction might be to play on the red-hot Pride. But .700 (or better) teams off back to back SU/ATS wins by more than 15 points, that also defeated their revenge-minded Tournament opponent by more than 15 points earlier in the season, have covered just 40% over the last 30 seasons. That doesn't bode well for Hofstra this evening. Nor does the fact that the Blue Hens are 10-2-1 ATS their last 13 Tournament games. Take Delaware + the points. 10* PLAY. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
