The Rider Broncs and Siena Saints meet Friday in college basketball action at the Times Union Center.

The Rider Broncs look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Rider Broncs are averaging 72.7 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Dimencio Vaughn is averaging 14.1 points and 1.6 assists while Tyere Marshall is averaging 12.7 points and 7.5 rebounds. Frederick Scott is the third double-digit scorer and Stevie Jordan is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Rider Broncs are shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 66.3 percent from the free throw line. The Rider Broncs are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The Rider Broncs have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Siena Saints look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Siena Saints are averaging 73.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 70.9 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Jalen Pickett is averaging 15.2 points and 5.3 assists while Elijah Burns is averaging 15.1 points and 6.1 rebounds. Manny Camper is the third double-digit scorer and Donald Carey is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Siena Saints are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free throw line. The Siena Saints are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Siena Saints haven’t lost a home game this season.

The home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Rider Broncs come into this game playing decent basketball, but they lose on the road by an average of 5.7 points while shooting 41.1 percent from the field, and they're 1-5 ATS as an underdog. The Siena Saints win at home by an average of 11 points and have covered six of their 10 home games. The home team has also won and covered seven of the last 10 meetings between Rider and Siena. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Saints.

Siena Saints -5.5
