The Hofstra Pride should be favored for obvious reasons, as they’re comfortably the better team and the William & Mary Tribe have been getting rocked all year. With that said, this is a lot of points for a Hofstra team that’s not covering numbers. And while William & Mary is losing and losing ugly, it’s still covered 11 of its last 16 games. All I care about is the cover. Give me the points with the Tribe.
