ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’m going to stick with Wagner in this one. We should have a decent matchup here, though. The Seahawks have won three straight games, but they’re not scoring all that well lately with 63 or fewer points in four of their last six outings. St. Francis BK has just 116 combined points over their last pair though, so Wagner should be able to stay competitive in this one. I like a fairly close game with Wagner eking out a late cover.
