Against The Spread Pick
Niagara took down Marist in their opening game of the MAAC tournament and now turn their attention to a clash against three-seeded Rider. The Purple Eagles escaped with a two-point win against the Red Foxes. The Broncs enter the tournament on a three-game winning streak. Rider was also to easily cover a nine-point spread when these teams last met this season. Niagara is 7-2 ATS in their last nine games. In the Broncs last six games, they covered the spread four times. Rider is 2-0 at a neutral site this season. With the Broncs covering in two of the last three meetings, a play on Rider to eight points is a good move.
Over Under Pick
In their two meetings, this season the Purple Eagles and Broncs didn’t reach a total higher than 138 points. The closest they came was exactly 138 points in a 70-68 victory for Niagara. The Purple Eagles couldn’t reach the same level in their more recent meeting as Rider held them to 58 points. The Broncs leaned heavily on the under this season, and a play on an under 138-point total is the right move here.
