Siena is listed as a 7.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -333. The total for this game is set at 130.5 points.
Niagara comes into this game with a clean injury report while Siena’s most recent injury is Michael Eley who is questionable with an illness while Taihland Owens and Jordan Kellier are both out indefinitely.
Siena’s 70-64 win back on January 13th, 2023, made it three wins in the last four meetings for Siena.
Niagara is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Siena is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I’m leaning towards the under here. Both teams have been trending towards the under lately, with both also owning top-100 scoring defenses and Siena is allowing 59.6 PPG in their last 5 games while Niagara is allowing 64.6 PPG in their last 5. I think this is the first to 65 wins so give me the under here.
