Monmouth vs Elon Betting Prediction

Both of these teams have lost two of their last three games and will look to end the regular season on a winning note. Elon is towards the bottom of the CAA standings and they have struggled defensively all season. Monmouth is 9-8 on conference play, but they are only shooting 42.5% from the field. The Hawks are coming off of a bad loss to Hampton, who is at the bottom of the standings, and they have been really bad on the road this season. Take Elon at home here.
