Elon vs College of William and Mary Free Pick February 1, 2018
The College of William and Mary are one of three teams tied at the top of the CAA, and they play at home against Elon tonight. They already beat the Phoenix by a score of 80-73 on the road earlier this season, and they have won six straight home games in this series. They covered the spread in five of those six home wins. The College of William and Mary are what I like to call a "Jekyll and Hyde" team. They are world beaters at home, but mere minnows on the road. I bet on them in their win over Marshall back in November, and here is what I had to say prior to that game: "The College of William and Mary are coming off a thrilling home win over Old Dominion. This comes as no surprise, as The Tribe are a real force on their home floor. They've won 16 of their last 17 home games dating back to the beginning of last season. They are 3-0 at home this year, and they have scored an average of 81 points on 54.2 percent shooting in those games. They are also shooting better than 48 percent from beyond the arc at home. They are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine home games, and I like their chances against a Marshall team that is 0-2 on the road." While they have lost consecutive home games to Towson and Northeastern, both those teams are a step up from Elon talent wise. The Phoenix are just 4-8 on the road, and have averaged just 69.7 points in those games. The Tribe have averaged almost 90 points per game at home.
