Northeastern Huskies (2-0) vs. Stanford Cardinal (2-1; 0-3 ATS; 1-2 O/U)

NCAAB: Friday, November 17, 2017 at 11:00pm EST

Line: Stanford -10

Total: 143.5

The Stanford Cardinal will take on the Northeastern Huskies in early season action Friday night from the Maples Pavilion in Stanford, CA. The Huskies are coming off an 83-49 home win against Wentworth, and the Cardinal dropped a 67-61 home decision to Eastern Washington on Tuesday night.

Northeastern Off to 2-0 Start

The Northeastern Huskies have faced two easy opponents to start the year and notched a win in both games. They defeated Boston University by a 65-59 score in their season opener and handled division II Wentworth 83-49 in their second contest. Freshman Thomas Murphy is off to a strong start to his collegiate career, averaging 11.5 points in two games on a 50% clip from the field. The Huskies leading returning scorer from last season Devon Begley is expected to lead the way after finishing third in team scoring with 9.7 points last season. The senior guard has scored 10 points in each of his first two games along with a total of 10 rebounds, and was an honorable mention for the CAA All-Conference team. Huskies sophomore guard Bolden Brace is off to a red-hot to start the year, shooting a dazzling 71% with a total of 20 points in two games. The 6-foot-4 guard had an encouraging freshman season, posting 5.4 points in 21.1 minutes.

The Huskies were selected to finish sixth in the ten-team CAA conference and went 15-16 last season. They are averaging 74 points in their first two games, and are allowing an average of 54 points.

Stanford Stunned in Loss to Eastern Washington

The Stanford Cardinal could not get their shots to fall in their 67-61 upset loss to Eastern Washington in game they were favored by 16.5 points. The Cardinal shot a poor 33% from the field which included a 2 for 16 effort from beyond the arc. Reid Travis led the offensive charge with a terrific 20-point effort on 6 for 14 shooting. The junior forward has scored at least 20 points in all three games and leads the Cardinal with 23 points per game. He was their top scorer last season and should have a big year. Michael Humphrey was not sharp in the loss, going 3 for 13 from the field for only eight points, however, he did pick up 11 rebounds. The 6-foot-9 senior forward is averaging 11.3 points in three games and leads the Cardinals with an average of 12.7 boards. Stanford was without Dorian Pickens in the loss on Tuesday night, and he is out definitely with a foot injury which is a hit to their scoring attack.

The Cardinal did win their two first games against Cal Poly and Pacific and should be an improved team over last year’s 14-win season. They are averaging 76 points in three games, ranking them 195th overall. Stanford is allowing an average of 69.7 points, placing them 155th overall.

Trends:

The Northeastern Huskies are:

  • No Key Trends

The Stanford Cardinal are:

  • 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
  • 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning road record.
  • 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a straight up winning record.

I am siding with Stanford in this matchup. I fully expect Stanford to rebound from their poor effort in their loss to Eastern Washington. They are going to be a much better team this year, and feature strong scoring depth and play tight defensively, so they should overmatch Northeastern in both ends. Furthermore, Northeastern lacks depth as they do not return one scorer that averaged in double-digits in points last season, and they were already a low scoring team last season.
