Marist is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the over is 9-3-1 in their last 13 games following an ATS loss. Saint Peter’s is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games.
I get the case to be made either way here, but my lean is towards Saint Peter’s. Marist has played their fair share of close games lately, but the Red Foxes simply aren’t getting enough points here for me to consider backing them against an extremely in-from Saint Peter’s team that’s 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Give me Saint Peter’s laying the points here.
