Siena vs Niagara Betting Prediction

Niagara comes into this matchup after a poor finish to the regular season, but they were still 11-9 in conference play, while Siena was only 3-17 in MAAC play and finished last in the conference. The Saints are only scoring 60.3 points per game and they are shooting 39.7% from the field, while also allowing 74.7 points against per game on defense. Siena did win the first meeting between these teams by a score of 93-88, while Niagara won the second meeting by a score of 66-59. Despite Siena’s poor regular season record, they did play Niagara very well in both meetings and I like the Saints to keep this game close as well. Take the points with Siena.
