The Fairfield Stags are barely keeping their heads above water with their big offense trying to overcome a defense that allows plenty. The Stags have won two of three after knocking off visiting Niagara 73-68 as an eight point favorite on Friday night. The Purple Eagles held a slight 40%-38% shooting advantage but FF came out on top thanks to eight more free throws in an even boxscore otherwise. Tyler Nelson paced the Fairfield attack with a game high 27 points, five yanks and five helpers on 5-8 on threes with Marcus Gilbert netting 17. Chris Cobb and Jonathan Kasibabu combined for 21 points and 15 boards with three others scoring nine points.
Saint Peter’s are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games and are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The over is 8-3-1 in Fairfield last 12 overall and the under is 37-17-1 in their last 55 home games. I’d probably want around four to be confident so take this for what it’s worth…
