Rider is listed as a 6.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 133.5 points.

Matchup History

Rider won the lone meeting between these two teams, 68-65, back on December 3rd, 2022.


Mount St. Mary’s is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a double-digit home loss and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 road games following three or more consecutive home games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. Rider is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.


I’m leaning towards Mount St. Mary’s here. The Broncs are solid and are in the hunt for the MAAC regular season title, but part of me wonders if this is just a win by any means necessary kind of game. The MAAC is a one-bid league, so there’s no impressing the tournament committee necessary and style points aren’t mandatory. Mount St. Mary’s battled Iona hard before falling apart late and I just feel like this ends up being a bit of a closer game, kind of like the first meeting that was a 3-point Rider win. Give me the Mountaineers and the points.
