UMBC Retrievers vs New Hampshire Wildcats prediction

The UMBC Retrievers have had their issues on the road all season, and they've been hit or miss overall, especially on the defensive side, which makes them hard to trust. The New Hampshire Wildcats beat UMBC on the road this season, and now they're at home, where they're 8-3 SU. New Hampshire has simply been the better team this season and competes more on the defensive side. The line is more than reasonable. I'll side with the New Hampshire Wildcats at home as they beat UMBC for a third straight time.
