The Wagner Seahawks and the Merrimack Warriors meet in college basketball action from the Hammel Court on Monday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The Merrimack Warriors are 2.5-point home favorites with a moneyline price of -140. The over/under is set at 115.5.


Neither side has any players listed on the injury report, so barring any last minute announcements, both teams will be completely healthy coming into this game.

Matchup history

Merrimack won the last meeting between these two teams on December 31st, 2022, by a final score of 58-48 to make it two straight wins against Wagner.


Wagner is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Merrimack is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 home games.


I get why the total is where it is, but this total has gone far too low in my opinion. Both of these teams have averaged over 60 PPG in their last 5 games and head-to-head, while these have been lower-scoring games, they’re still normally finishing around 120 points more often than not. I’d lean towards Merrimack, but I like the over a bit more here.
