Morgan State is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. Coppin State is 9-2 Ats in their last 11 games as a home underdog and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. The underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
I get why you could make the case for Coppin State at home being 5-1 straight up, but the Eagles have also been average against the number at best over the last month or so. Morgan State’s been crushing the number all year long and are 4-1 ATS on the road this season. I’ll lay the bucket with Morgan State on the road here.
