Quinnipiac is 5-1 ATS in their last six at home and the under is 4-1 in their last five overall. The under is 4-1 in the Bobcats’ last five home games.
Meanwhile, the Crusaders are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last nine after an ATS loss. The over is 4-1 in Holy Cross’ last five road games.
PICK: I’m probably going to stick with Quinnipiac. The Bobcats understandably fell big to Maryland in their opener, but seemed to get their spirits back quickly in a cupcake second matchup. Quinnipiac shot 55.7 percent from the field in that one along with 16-of-36 (44.4 percent) from 3-point range. If the Bobcats can retain a bit of that shooting touch they should be just fine here.
