William and Mary is hoping to stop the bleeding and make a run into March as well as get revenge for their earlier loss to Drexel.
The Drexel Dragons are 13-12 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Drexel is just 1-9 straight up on the road this season and 10-14 against the spread overall.

William and Mary are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 home games, 1-5 against the spread following a loss, and 0-4 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Drexel is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games, 1-8 against the spread in their last nine road games, and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The underdog has covered the spread in four of the last five meetings of these two teams.
If this game was a few weeks ago I would have been thinking it would be W&M all day long but I am a lot more skeptical now and while I don’t love the game, I will roll with the Dragons and the points.
