Hampton is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with Hampton, who are 13-14 against the spread.
The losses put Hampton at 6-22 and the Dragons at 15-13. A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Pirates have only been able to knock down 38.90% percent of their shots, which is the 360th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Drexel has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 37th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
