Monmouth enters this one at 12-7 so far. The Hawks are on a four-game winning streak right now, beating Marist, Manhattan, Niagara and Iona during that stretch of outings.
In the win over the Gaels, Monmouth’s Deion Hammond led the team with 25 points, two assists and one rebound. Ray Salnave posted 15 points, five assists and six rebounds there, and Marcus McClary had 12 points and four rebounds.
Over on the Saint Peter’s side, they’re 7-10 this year. The Peacocks are 2-1 in their last three games, falling to Rider while otherwise taking out Quinnipiac and Niagara during that time.
In the win over the Eagles, Saint Peter’s Matthew Lee led the team with 13 points and five assists. Hassan Drame was the only other player on the team in double-digits there, doubling up on 10 points and 10 rebounds.
The under is 4-0 in the Peacocks’ last four overall and 45-21-2 in their last 68 after an ATS loss. St. Peter’s is 2-7 ATS in their last nine Wednesday games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 overall.
Meanwhile, the Hawks are 1-5 ATS in their last six Wednesday games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games. Monmouth is 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win.
Monmouth has put up at least 74 points in three of four games during this win streak, and they’ve hit at least 70 in eight of their last nine games overall. Seems the Hawks have built some momentum over the last couple of months and they’re playing pretty well.
As for Saint Peter’s, they’ve hit 70 just once over their last seven games, and really just aren’t a big-scoring team this year. All things considered here, I’m going to stick with the Hawks on the cover.
