NCAAB: Wednesday Teaser takes home teams - Explorers, Hawks
Binghamton +12 @ HARTFORD 7 pm. It’s hard to give 12 points with a Hartford team that’s 10-11, 3-3. Then again, Binghamton is 6-15, 2-4, has lost four of its last five and in its last three away games has lost by 28, 19 and 13. Besides, we’re giving Hartford our Teaser 5 so they only have to win by 8. UMASS -2 @ LA SALLE 7 pm. La Salle (4-14, 2-4) has had a mostly tough year under new coach Ashley Howard, but one of the bright spots was a 69-60 win at UMASS on Jan. 5. The Minutemen (8-12, 1-6), at one point were 7-5 and had a terrible first month of 2019 (granted, against mostly decent teams). They showed life in a 77-70 home win Sunday against a Rhode Island team that’s better than La Salle, but to be a road favorite when you’ve won only one true road game all season seems a bit much, especially when we give the Explorers our Teaser points.
Pick: HARTFORD -7 Over Binghamton paired with LA SALLE +8 Over UMASS.
