Randy’s Free Pick
The Siena Saints are the better team, but they're not playing so hot at the moment, and it makes laying this sort of chalk difficult. The Manhattan Jaspers may not win games, but they're competitive, and they're also 9-3 ATS on the road. Manhattan loses as underdogs by an average of 4.6 points. I'll take a shot with the road dog.
