The Niagara Purple Eagles are a competitive team that only loses on the road by an average of 3.2 points. However, the bottom line is neither of these teams are all that great, and I usually lean toward the home team in these spots. The Rider Broncs beat Niagara on the road last month, and they win at home by an average of 2.6 points. Near pick em spot, give me Rider.
