Rider’s 73-60 win over Saint Peter’s back on March 2nd, 2023, made it three straight wins for the Broncs int his head-to-head matchup.
Saint Peter’s is 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games following an ATS win and 15-3 ATS in their last 18 neutral site games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Rider is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I’m backing Rider here. Saint Peter’s did well to get past Fairfield, but this is still a Peacocks team that has had trouble scoring in conference play and the Peacocks didn’t have a ton of success in their prior games against Rider earlier this season. Rider is simply the better team here and the more trustworthy option at this point so I’ll lay the points with the Broncs here.
