Northeastern is the number two seed in this tournament and in the last game against William & Mary, the defense locked down giving up only 47 points and that led to the victory.

The under is 7-1 in Drexel’s last eight neutral site games. Northeastern is 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Northeastern’s last 12 neutral site games. Drexel is 9-23-2 against the spread in their last 34 games played on Monday.
Northeastern’s defense is going to be the difference in this game as they lock down Drexel. Back Northeastern against the spread. In terms of the total I expect a lower scoring game overall and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under to cash.
