Matchup History

These two teams have never met on the hardwood prior to this meeting.


Mount St. Mary’s is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a double-digit loss at home while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. Iona is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.


I’m sticking with the under in this game. I think this just comes down to the fact that I’m not expecting much of anything from Mount St. Mary’s offensively in this game. Iona I think can get what they want here but even if Iona gets into the low-70s, I don’t think MSM breaks 60 here. Give me the under.
