The Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens (19-7, CONF 9-4) and William & Mary Tribe (17-10, CONF 9-5) face off in a key CAA showdown at Kaplan Arena. The first time they faced off this year, The Tribe came out ahead 77-68.
The Blue Hens are smoking hot coming into this game having won eight games in a row and covered the spread in five of those. Each of the last four games Delaware’s offense has scored at least 80 points and pushing the pace has worked out well for them.
Junior guard Nate Darling is the star of the Blue Hens averaging 21 points while shooting 44.8 percent from the field.
On defense, Delaware is giving up 75.4 points per game over the last five, which makes it even more important the offense is elite in this game.
For the Tribe they have been up and down, and come into this game they have lost three of the last four games, and failed to cover the spread in each of their last six games.
Over the last five games, the Tribe are averaging only 62 points per game, and that needs to change. At home this season William and Mary is giving up only 67.2 points per game and the first time they played against Delaware they gave up only 68.
The over is 35-16-2 in the Blue Hens last 53 games overall. The over is 37-18 in the Tribe’s last 55 home games.
The Fightin’ Blue Hens are 2-8 ATS in their last ten meetings against the Tribe.
The Blue Hens offense has been running up the score as of late, and it won’t be any different in this game. Who knows if it will be enough to win this game, but it’s going to be enough for the Blue Hens and Tribe to push this total over.
