Iona vs. Fairfield - 3/5/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

USA TODAY Sports

In the Sunday game versus Quinnipiac, Fairfield managed a 74-64 win. Leading the way for the Stags in that one was Ferron Flavors, with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Tyler Nelson also had a nice game for the Stags with 19 points and four rebounds. 

Over on the Iona side, they’re currently 19-13 on the season overall. The Gaels had a bit of a sketchy run going during February, when they lost four games in a six-game stretch before winning their last two outings. 

In Sunday’s tournament action versus Saint Peter’s, the Gaels won 65-62. Iona was down 30-20 at halftime, but stormed back to get the victory. Guard Schadrac Casimir led the way for Iona with 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting. 

Fairfield is 4-0 ATS in their last four overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four versus the MAA. The Stags are also 5-1 ATS in their last six following an ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last five neutral-site games. 

Meanwhile, Iona is 4-1 ATS in the last five following an ATS loss and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five Monday games. The Gaels are also 0-4 ATS in their last four following a straight-up win and the over is 9-3-1 in their last 13 overall. 

It’s been a while since we’ve seen these teams meet up; both games were back in January—which seems like ages ago. Iona took the January 7 game at home 84-65, and Fairfield evened it up with a 103-100 home win on January 29. Fairfield has looked pretty good since then, and Iona has been fairly inconsistent. All things considered, I like the Stags here.
