Matchup History

Rider’s 67-65 win over Manhattan back on January 22, 2023 made it back-to-back wins for the Broncs in this matchup.


Rider is 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 road games and 27-12-1 ATS in their last 40 road games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall. Manhattan is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 21-8 in their last 29 games following an ATS win.


I’m sticking with Rider here. Manhattan’s had a tendency to make life tough on the upper-tier MAAC teams this season, like beating Siena last time out and taking Iona to OT, but Rider is playing with some kind of confidence right now and I think they have enough momentum behind them to push for another win here. I’ll lay the points with Rider on the road here.
