After six games on the road, the Monmouth Hawks are heading back home. They will take on the Colgate Raiders at 2 p.m. ET Sunday at OceanFirst Bank Center. Monmouth should still be riding high after a victory, while Colgate will be looking to right the ship.
The Hawks beat the Yale Bulldogs 69-60 last week.
Meanwhile, the Raiders lost to the St. John’s Red Storm on the road by a decisive 82-64 margin. Colgate’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of guard Jack Ferguson, who shot 7-for-14 from beyond the arc and finished with 23 points, and forward Keegan Records, who had 11 points and five assists in addition to six boards and three blocks.
Monmouth is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on an 11-game streak of ATS wins.
Monmouth is now 9-2 while Colgate sits at 4-7. The Hawks are 7-1 after wins this year, and the Raiders are 2-4 after losses.
