The Rider Broncs come into this game red hot, which includes shooting nearly 47 percent from the field and scoring 78.6 points during their winning streak. Rider also smoked Quinnipiac by 18 points when these teams met less than a month ago, and the Broncs have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Bobcats overall. Quinnipiac just isn't a really good basketball team and has a negitive point differential at home. I'll eat the reasonable number with the better team.
