Niagara’s 59-57 win over Saint Peter’s back on January 22nd, 2023, snapped Saint Peter’s four-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.
Saint Peter’s is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games against a team with a winning home record while the under is 13-3 in their last 16 home games. Niagara is 25-11-1 ATS in their last 37 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.
I’m backing Saint Peter’s here. Niagara’s watched their form fall off of a cliff and have made it very hard on themselves to have a decent seed in the MAAC tournament and I think the Peacocks can come in and make life difficult on senior day. I think Niagara gets the win, but they’ve played in a ton of close games and I think this one could be close as well. Give me the Peacocks and the points.
