The Saints are 5-1 ATS in the last six games following an ATS win and 10-2 ATS in the last 12 road games. Siena is also 7-2 ATS in their last nine games following a straight-up loss and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the Metro Atlantic.
Meanwhile, the Jaspers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. Manhattan is also 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall and the under is 6-1 in the last seven Saturday games.
Siena doesn’t have much to offer in the way of scoring this year, but oddly enough they’ve hit 70 points in two of their last three losses (and 69 in the other one), which isn’t bad in relative terms. As for Manhattan, they’ve put up 66 points or fewer in two of their last three games. That said, I think the Jaspers can hold on here for a cover.
