Saint Peters takes on the Niagara Purple Eagles Monday and Bill Young suggests putting 1 unit on Niagara to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Niagara –14, but the line has since dropped to Niagara -13.
Young writes: Niagara faces a St. Peter’s team that is just 1-12 on the road this season. This may be a big spread, but you will be counting your chips by halftime. Niagara already beat St. Peter’s by 20 points on the road back on January 25th. Niagara is 9-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last 10 home meetings with St. Peter’s. Niagara won their last home contest with St. Peter’s by 33 points with a final score of 88-55. Niagara is 13-4 ATS when playing with one or less days rest over the last 2 seasons. Little rest does not bother this team, they are actually more sharp when this is the case. Take Niagara and lay the points.
