Quinnipiac vs Evansville Betting Prediction

Quinnipiac went into the MAAC Tournament as the #1 seed after a great regular season, but they couldn’t figure out the St. Peter’s defense and came up short in their pursuit of the NCAA Tournament. Evansville finished conference play with just six wins and they were 10th in the MVC. The Purple Aces have lost eight of their last nine games and they do not shoot free throws very well. I know the MVC is the better conference, but Evansville was pretty bad in it. Take Quinnipiac to get the win here.
