Will update with trends once they're released.
The Monmouth Hawks are winning games, but they struggle mightily offensively and it leads to issues on the road where they lose by an average of 9.8 points and shoot 38.6 percent from the field. The Manhattan Jaspers win at home by an average of eight points and their offense has picked up big time during their recent winning stretch. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Manhattan Jaspers.
