Hampton vs Northeastern Betting Prediction

Hampton comes into this game in last place in the CAA standings, but they have won two games in a row, which were their first conference wins of the season. The Pirates are only shooting 43.8% from the field and they are allowing 77.6 points against per game on defense this season. Northeastern has lost two of their last three games, but they are 6-9 in CAA play. The Huskies don’t average as many points as Hampton does, but their defense is much better. I know Hampton has played very poor defense this year, but they have put two wins together against decent competition and I think they are going to keep this game within single digits. Take the Pirates here.
