St. Peter’s at Monmouth odds, lines, picks and predictions


Monmouth 71, St. Peter’s 65

Money line

Monmouth performs well against teams that allow a fair amount of breakaway buckets, and that puts SPU in the Hawks’ target sights. MU’s last four games have been especially solid. MONMOUTH (-200) is a fair price; just one without much value. Consider the ATS action as providing better leverage.

Against the spread

The Hawks are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games against winning teams.

Look for a veteran Monmouth core to post a big effort in this Friday night revenge spot. TAKE THE HAWKS -4.5 (-105).


Meeting No. 1 hit the Under but was pegged at 136.5. Figure that original total as being a solid enough starting point here. Peg the OVER 131.5 (-112) with a slight lean in a game with a lot of free throws and transition points.
