8* Wednesday CBB HOF/GAST
Hofstra vs. Georgia State,
02/13/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 43 - 61
Total: -110/+128½ Under
Hofstra & Georgia State under 128.5
The Hofstra Pride have very little offensive firepower. In their last 8 games, Hofstra has scored more than 60 points only once (they scored 65 in their last game).
The Pride have improved defensively as the season has moved along, primarily because that is the only way they are going to stay in the game. Three of their best players are suspended due to an arrest earlier this year.
Georgia State is one of the teams in the CAA that likes to slow the game down a bit. Coach Ron Hunter had some good defenses at IUPUI, and he is implementing the same system at Georgia State.
Hofstra is averaging less than 58 points per game on the road this year, and I think Georgia State’s defense will hold them below that number.
In the first meeting between these teams this season, Hofstra won 52-50. It was obvious in that one that the defenses were well ahead of the offenses.
The under is 12-1 in Hofstra’s last 13 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Hofstra’s last 4 Wednesday games. This should be a sloppy low scoring matchup. Take the under.
Good luck, Razor Ray
