What to Know

The Monmouth Hawks have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Monmouth and the St. Peter’s Peacocks will face off in an MAAC battle at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Yanitelli Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Hawks winning the first 78-76 at home on the road and St. Peter’s taking the second 78-76.

It looks like Monmouth must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the squad didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive three weeks ago. They were within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 77-71 to the Hofstra Pride. That makes it the first time this season Monmouth has let down their home crowd.

Meanwhile, St. Peter’s was just a bucket short of a victory three weeks ago and fell 64-63 to the Stony Brook Seawolves.

The Hawks are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread three weeks ago might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a win. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
