Niagara Coming off Close Win

Niagara had to make a comeback on Tuesday but they were able to knock off Siena. At halftime they were down by a point, but in the second half they were able to secure the win.

Marist vs Niagara Betting Prediction

Marist might not be playing too well heading into this game, but they will still find success here. Niagara almost lost on Wednesday against a team that had only four wins this season, and it’s not going to get any easier in this game. Marist’s defense is going to lockdown here, and that is going to be enough for them to get the job done with ease. Back Marist against the spread here.
