Matchup History

Mount St. Mary’s won the lone meeting between these two teams, 64-60, back on January 2nd, 2023.


Canisius is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Mount St. Mary’s is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m backing the over here. I don’t trust either side as far as I can throw them and while I normally wouldn’t expect these two teams to pile on the points, both have been finding themselves in high-scoring games as of late. Both teams are allowing over 74 PPG in their last 5 games while Canisius is scoring 73 and MSM is scoring 67.3 PPG in that stretch. I think this ends up being a higher scoring one too so give me the over here.
