Northeastern is coming off a 70-48 road loss to Delaware in their last game. That loss snapped a two-game win streak for the Huskies, who have now lost three of their last five overall. Drexel is coming off an 81-74 home loss to Hofstra in their last game. Drexel has now lost four games in a row, as their last win came on February 6th against James Madison.
Northeastern scores 71.1 points per game on 47.1% FG shooting this season. The Huskies leading scorer is G Jordan Roland, who scores 23.0 PPG. The Huskies leading rebounder is G Bolden Brace, who averages 6.5 RPG. Northeastern allows 66.6 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a +4.5 scoring differential so far this season. Northeastern also earns 31.3 rebounds, 12.9 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 8.1 steals per game.
Drexel scores 69.5 points per game on 44.4% FG shooting this season. The Dragons leading scorer is G Camren Wynter, who scores 16.0 PPG. The Dragons leading rebounder is F James Butler, who averages 11.8 RPG. Drexel allows 70.7 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a -1.2 point differential so far this season. Drexel also earns 35.6 rebounds, 14.8 assists, 2.9 blocks, and 5.7 steals per game as a team.
Northeastern is 11-16 ATS this season and 4-6 ATS in their last ten games. Northeastern is also 7-6 ATS on the road so far this season. Drexel is 11-15 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Drexel is also 6-6 ATS at home so far this season.
Northeastern has struggled badly away from home as of late. I am not sure what happens to the Huskies on the road, but I am certainly not going to take them in this spot after a 32 point road loss. Drexel +2.5 at home for me.
