The Elon Phoenix (5-14) will travel to Newark, Delaware to take on the Delaware Blue Hens (11-7). Elon has lost four of their last five games with the lone win coming against UNC Wilmington. Elon took a road loss to Drexel last time out, scoring just 41 points in the 63-41 loss. Hunter McIntosh led Elon with 12 points, eight rebounds, and two assists on the night.

Delaware has also lost four of their last five games with the lone win coming on the road against James Madison. Delaware is currently on a two-game losing streak after recently losing to William & Mary, 77-68. Kevin Anderson led the Blue Hens with 25 points but it wasn’t enough to overcome Nathan Knight’s big night for William & Mary.

Elon looks to Jump Delaware in the CAA Standings

Elon is 1-5 in the Colonial Athletic Association conference and trail Delaware by one game. If Elon wants to get back into the mix for a better seed in the conference tournament, they’ll need to scrape out this win. Elon averages 67.6 points per game and allow 71.7 points against. The Phoenix shoot 40.9 percent from the field and snag 34 rebounds a game.

The Phoenix are led by Marcus Sheffield II who scores 16.4 points per game on 40.7 percent from the field. Sheffield II also leads the team in assists with 2.9 per game. Hunter Wood leads Elon in rebounds with 6.3 per game. Elon only has two scorers averaging double digits in points but shoots 70 percent from the foul line and 36.3 from the three-point line.

Delaware looks to throw away slow start in the Colonial

Delaware is off to a 2-5 start in the Colonial. Before conference play opened up, Delaware was 10-2 on the season. The Blue Hens are hoping the magic hasn’t run out. At home, against a team lower than Delaware in the standings, this game is a must-win for Delaware. The Blue Hens average 73.5 points per game and allow 69.1 points against. The Blue Hens shoot 47.5 percent from the floor and snag 34.1 rebounds per game.

The Blue Hens are led by Nate Darling who averages 19.3 points per game. Justyn Mutts mans the middle with 8.6 rebounds per game. Kevin Anderson leads the team in assists with 3.4 per game. Delaware has five scorers in double figures. Delaware shoots 74.9 from the line and 36.3 from the three-point line on the season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Despite Elon’s record this season, they’ve recently become a covering machine, going 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games. Conference play is always tight with upsets just waiting to happen. Elon had a very poor performance against Drexel, scoring just 41 points. The line will reflect that score and if you look at the rest of the games Elon has played, they’ve never had this much trouble scoring. Delaware allows more points than Elon averages. You can expect Elon to find rhythm offensively and keep this game tight and close.

Prediction: Elon Phoenix +11

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Delaware is shooting almost 48 percent from the floor and they’ll be home against a Phoenix team that allows 71.7 points per game. Both teams aren’t the best rebounding teams, which means there will be plenty of second chance opportunities for more buckets. Elon’s 41 point performance against Drexel won’t happen again. Elon consistently puts up at least 65 points a game, at least recently. Look for a high scoring game between two teams that will struggle to defend each other.

Prediction: Over 139
