The Rider Broncs are in the same boat as their counterparts in that they need to win some conference games soon or risk being an afterthought. The Broncs saw a two game winning streak end in a 63-52 defeat at Siena with the Saints 31-22 second half securing the win. The Saints held a slight 38.5%-37% shooting advantage with five more long balls and a 16-10 edge at the charity stripe. The Bobcats might have cost themselves a chance at a win on a 2-20 performance from long range. Khalil Alford led Quinnipiac with 16 points on 5-10 with Teddy Okereafor tossing in 14 points. Khalil Thomas added seven points and hauled in eleven rebounds but production was lacking overall.
Qunnipiac are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and the over is 20-8 in their last 28 road games. Rider are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Bobcats won the first match up but in reality they are probably not the better team. Having said that I suggest looking elsewhere…
