Colgate is 8-4 ATS this season, 5-4 ATS after a win, and 3-3 ATS at home. Boston is 8-9 ATS this season, 4-2 ATS after a win, and 6-3 ATS on the road.

Colgate will be hosting this game as they are the higher seed. Colgate has gone 5-1 at home this season, with a +19.3 point differential. They handled Boston each time they played this season, and it will be hard to imagine this one going any other way. Colgate has shot the ball extremely well in the second half of the year, and should have no trouble pulling away against an inconsistent Boston attack. Give me Colgate to cover at home.
