Hofstra is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 5-0 in Hofstra’s last 5 Friday games. Elon is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games. The under is 4-1 in Elon’s last 5 games. The road team is 9-4 ATS in these two teams last 13 head to head meetings.

Hofstra comes into this game with the edge in just about every stat, but is playing on the road. Hofstra did beat Arkansas earlier in the year, so we know they are capable of playing at a high level. Elon played that same Arkansas team and lost by 26 points. While the transitive property in sports doesn’t always work, I do think Hofstra is the better team and I like them on the road.
