Saint Peter’s is 12-2 ATS in their last 14 Friday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Rider is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall.
I’m going to take a shot with Saint Peter’s and the points here. The Broncs have surprisingly shot up to 2nd in the MAAC, and I think for Rider it’s not about style points, almost like a win by any means necessary approach. Even if that’s not necessarily their approach, the reality is both teams have played in some close games lately and I just feel like this is a game closer than the line indicates. Give me the under here.
