Randy’s Free Pick
I'm not running to the window to bet on either of these teams, as they're both terrible. But if forced to pick, I'd have to give the edge to the Canisius Golden Griffins, who are at home. While Manhattan loses on the road by an average of 7.8 points, Canisius wins at home by an average of 2.9 points. I'm staying away, but Canisius is the pick if forced to pick a side.
