Hampton vs Elon Betting Prediction 

Hampton comes into this matchup after finishing last in the CAA standings, but they have played better in their last five games. The Pirates are allowing 76.9 points against per game this season, but they have held their opponents to fewer than 71 points in four of their last five games. Elon has lost three of their last four games, but they did beat Hampton in their only meeting by a score of 80-74. These two teams are very similar when looking at the season stats, but I like how Hampton finished the regular season. Give me the Pirates here.
