The Iona Gaels are the better team, no matter how you slice it, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 11.8 points. The Marist Red Foxes don’t shoot the ball well, and they even have a negative point differential at home. Marist doesn’t do much of anything well. Big line especially for a road team, but I’ll side with Iona anyway.
