Randy’s Free Pick
I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams in horrible form, and it doesn't help that Marist actually loses at home by an average of 4.4 points. It's a horrible matchup. You can argue the Fairfield Stags are the better team, but that's not saying much. Give me Marist because of home court, but I'm not betting this at all.
