Matchup History

Niagara’s 77-69 OT win over Fairfield back on January 6th, 2023, snapped Niagara’s two-game head-to-head win streak.


Fairfield is 25-10 ATS in their last 35 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Niagara is 24-11-1 ATS in their last 36 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.


This isn’t a game I’m rushing to bet, but I lean towards Niagara here. The Purple Eagles have struggled, but a lot of their struggles came on the road and at home they’ve been able to beat lesser teams all year long. Fairfield’s played some close games, but I just don’t feel like we’re getting enough points to consider the Stags in this spot. Give me the Purple Eagles laying the bucket.
