Binghamton Bearcats vs UMBC Retrievers prediction

The UMBC Retrievers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, and I guess because they blasted Binghamton a couple of weeks ago. UMBC beat the Bearcats on the road by 11 points as 4 point underdogs. With all that said, a strong argument can be made that the Binghamton Bearcats have been the better team this season overall, and there's been some success on the road. The UMBC Retrievers are just 6-8 SU at home this season. And while UMBC has been the better covering team, it's Binghamton that's covered 8 of its last 10 games. Wrong team favored? Give me the free bucket with the Binghamton Bearcats.
