Saints down Stags

College Basketball Betting Trends

Rider

The Broncs are 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games. Rider is 1-4 ATS in its last five Friday games. 

Siena

The Saints are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

Prediction:

Rider defeated Siana on its home floor 85-77 back on January 5, so this is a revenge spot for the Saints. But while the Saints have played well lately in winning four of their last five games straight up, none of the opponents have been quite as good as the Broncs. Rider is tied atop the MAAC standings with St. Peter's and with the latter also playing tonight, it knows a win is important to keep pace. I'm siding with Rider here to at least stay within the five points.
