Bryant vs. UMass-Lowell Prediction

I’m on Bryant and the points here. I get why UMass-Lowell is favored with these America East games being at campus sites, but the Bulldogs have been right there nip and tuck throughout the season at the top of the conference near Vermont and UML, and I think the Bulldogs can battle and keep this game close as well. Give me Bryant and the points.
