New Hampshire has been on a roll since losing to Vermont in the beginning of February. Unfortunately, that doesn’t compare to the role that the Catamounts have been on in conference play.

    New Hampshire Wildcats vs Vermont Catamounts 


The Vermont Catamounts come into the America East tournament as the top cat in the conference, having gone a perfect 16-0 SU in the conference regular season and winning 18 straight coming into this game. Even though they have compiled a 27-5 record on the season, they only have a 3-3 ATS record to show for it, with many of their games unlined.

The last time the Catamounts lost ATS was against New Hampshire, as they failed to cover a 12.5 point spread in their 82-74 win on February 9th. Vermont has beaten New Hampshire twice this year, once by 12 and that last game by 8. In both games, they shot well, but in their last ATS loss to the Wildcats Vermont also allowed New Hampshire to shoot their season average from the floor. The three leading scorers on the season for New Hampshire; Tanner Leissner, Daniel Dion, and Jaleen Smith, still had respectable performances in that loss against Vermont as well. I’d expect complete dominance in both games if Vermont was warranted a double-digit point spread here, and the results just aren’t there statistically. New Hampshire should be able to make this game interesting, so I am taking the 11 points and the Wildcats at 5Dimes as one of my Monday night college basketball picks.
