The Wagner Seahawks will look to rebound from a 75-64 loss to Army last time out. DeLonnie Hunt leads the Seahawks in scoring and assists with 12 PPG and 3 APG while Zaire Williams has 11.5 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Wagner so far this season. Rahmir Moore has 9.2 PPG while Brandon Brown has a team-high 8.4 RPG as well this season. As a team, Wagner is averaging 66.4 PPG on 39.6% shooting from the field, 33.7% from behind the arc and 60.8% from the foul line this season.
The Fordham Rams will try to build on their 7-game win streak after a 95-90 win over Tulane on the road as 11-point underdogs last time out. Darius Quisenberry has a team-high 17.7 PPG while Khalid Moore has 15.3 PPG with 5.6 RPG this season. Kyle Rose has 10.2 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Fordham so far this year while Antrell Charlton has 8.6 PPG with 4.2 RPG and 4.3 APG to lead the Rams in the assist department this season. Abdou Tsimbila also has a team-high 8.1 RPG as well on the year. As a team, Fordham is averaging 74.1 PPG on 45.4% shooting from the field, 36.4% from three and 74.4% from the foul line this season.
Wagner is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a winning home record and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 road games against a team with a winning home record. Fordham is 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 home games and 10-0-1 ATS in their last 11 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 home games against a team with a losing road record.
I get the case to be made either way here, as both teams have had struggles in terms of offensive efficiency, but Fordham tends to shoot the ball a whole lot better than Wagner has, and the Rams are the more efficient team on the defensive end of the floor. It’s a decent sized number to go against Wagner, who was a money team for us last year, but I think the Rams get the win and cover here. Give me Fordham.
