Stony Brook + 1 @ HARTFORD on ESPN+ at 7 pm
Pick: Hartford -1
The America East Conference despite not being a power conference has proven to be one of the more interesting races to watch. The Stony Brook Seawolves and the Hartford Hawks are both contenders to win the conference and are fighting for an auto-bid into the tournament.
The Seawolves (23-7, 11-4) currently are second place in the conference and are coming off a close lose to top-ranked Vermont. Akwasi Yeboah has really made strides from his sophomore season averaging 17 PPG and 8 RPG. The line can be considered as irrelevant for this matchup, but the Seawolves as the away team are 11-4-0 ATS.
The Hawks (17-13, 10-5) with a win could move up a slot in the conference standings and have been riding a four-game winning streak. J.R. Lynch despite being undersized has been a workhorse (37.6 MPG) and leads the team in scoring, assists and steals. As the home team, the Hawks are 6-5-0 ATS.
Each team has proven to hold their own against formidable opponents. The trends could point to the Seawolves having the edge. However, I trust the Hawks will take care of business at home as they have a lot of momentum coming into tonight.
