Saint Joseph’s vs George Mason Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup with 9-9 conference records and they were tied for seventh in the A-10 standings. Saint Joe’s is scoring over 76 points per game this season, but they are also allowing over 71 points against per game on defense. George Mason is the better defensive team and they also have a higher field goal percentage. St. Joseph’s did win the first meeting with George Mason by a score of 75-73, but I think we are going to see a lower scoring game here. Take the under.
