Both groups took a loss in their last video game, so they’ll have lots of inspiration to get the ‘W.’

It was close however no stogie for the Black Bears as they fell 49-47 to the Merrimack Warriors last Tuesday.

Meanwhile, RU wound up a bargain behind the Seton Hall Pirates when they played 2 weeks back, losing 77-63 Guard Geo Baker wasn’t much of a distinction maker for the Scarlet Knights; Baker ended up with 11 points on 4-for-11 shooting in his 27 minutes on the court.

Maine need to understand they’ll be combating an uphill struggle offered the 24 point spread they are up versus. Those who got fortunate with them versus the spread recently may wish to hold back on positioning bets this time considering that the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins versus the spread.
