Hampton vs Delaware Betting Prediction

Delaware comes into this matchup after losing three of three last four games, but they did go 10-8 in conference play this year and finished tied for sixth in the CAA. The Blue Hens have the better offensive numbers on the season, but they had some poor performances down the stretch. Hampton only had three conference wins in the regular season, but they beat Elon on Friday. Delaware won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 80-53, but Hampton is playing their best basketball of the season. I think Hampton is playing well enough to give Delaware some trouble, so I am going to take the Pirates with the points.
