Randy’s Free Pick
The Fairfield Stags have issues of their own, but they're at home here and they're covering numbers. The Manhattan Jaspers are just awful, and that includes losing on the road by an average of 6.6 points. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Fairfield, as I want little to do with Manhattan.
