The St Bonaventure Bonnies have been really solid defensively this season if you remove their game against TCU, and one thing about defense, it's that it usually travels. The Siena Saints have been the complete opposite, allowing no less than 76 points in each of their last four games. This is a game that favors the Bonnies, a team that needs to stockpile as many wins as possible before the A-10 play begins. I'll take the road team by double digits.
