Northeastern vs. William & Mary, 02/11/2013 19:00
Today we have a rematch between two teams in the Colonial Athletic Conference that clashed, fought, and battled out in 2 OT's just about 3 weeks ago, Northeastern and W&M.
The last meeting between the two was at the Matthews Arena, home of NE, which resulted in a 91-95 double overtime victory for Huskies.
As the two meet up again, this time in Virginia, home of the Tribe, look for another fought out battle. W&M is going to want revenge on this game. Despite the tension between the two, and as Ironic as it may seem though, the Huskies are 8-1 on the road this season, and happen to play better on the road than they do at home.
The last meeting between the two, NE got onto a great first half, and offensive consistency throughout the whole game. They scored 34 points in both the first and second half, but what even kept the game close was the lack on defense from the Huskies in the second half. Speaking of defense, they played great and outscored them my 15 in the first half by holding W&M to only 19 points in the first half, however on the downside, they allowed 49 points in the second half alone, where then they got outscored by 15 and caused the game to go into a set of overtimes.
Whenever the spread on the road has been -2 or less on NE this season, they have covered 3 out of 3 times. Both teams are 3-2 ATS on their past 5 games, however, W&M is only 2-3 SU, while on the other hand, NE is 4-1.
Look for another close game here in VA, but look for NE to have patched up those openings on defense from the last time these two played. I like the line here on the Huskies.
Taking the Negative 2 points (-2) on NE for some CBB tonight.
Pick: NE Huskies -2
