Hartford isn’t getting much respect with this spread, especially when considering the slower pace of play both the Hawks and Toreros favor. Hartford had themselves a respectable campaign standing 19-13 overall and 11-5 in the American East. The Hawks have a slight positive plus/minus ranking 259th in the nation in scoring compared to 103rd in total defense. San Diego was a step behind the upper tier teams in the WCC this season, but the Toreros were scrappy ranking 273rd in the nation in scoring compared to 31st in total defense. San Diego stands 18-13 overall and this group went 9-9 in conference. We expect a lower scoring matchup which gives the points even more value to the Hawks. Take Hartford with the points as the better value play.
