Monmouth is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games played on Friday. The under is 4-0 in the Hawks last four Friday games. The over is 4-1 in Fairfield’s last five road games. Monmouth is 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record. Fairfield is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. 

The team with the better defense heading into this game is actually Fairfield, and I expect their defense is going to find success. Look for Fairfield to slow down Monmouth, and that is going to be the difference. Back Fairfield against the spread. In terms of the total this is a little too high and the under will cash.
