Hofstra vs Charleston Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game playing very well recently and they are sitting towards the top of the CAA standings. Charleston is currently in first place, while Hofstra is tied for second. The Cougars are scoring over 80 points per game, but they are only shooting 44.1% from the field. That low shooting percentage could be an issue against Hofstra’s defense, as they have allowed 64 points or fewer in four straight. Charleston won the first meeting by a score of 73-61 and they have dominated conference play. Take the Cougars to finish the regular season strong at home.
