The Monmouth Hawks and the Siena Saints meet in college basketball MAAC-tion from the MVP Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The Monmouth Hawks will look to bounce back from a 70-65 loss to Saint Peter’s in their last game. George Papas leads the Hawks in scoring and assists with 15.6 PPG and 3 APG while Shavar Reynolds has 14 PPG with 2.9 RPG. Walker Miller’s got 14.9 PPG and 6 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Monmouth so far this season. Nikkei Rutty also has a team-high 7.7 RPG of his own to lead the Hawks in rebounding so far this season. As a team, Monmouth is averaging 69.5 PPG on 42.1% shooting from the field, 32.1% from three and 73.6% from the foul line while allowing 67.4 PPG on 40.2% shooting from the field and 31.4% from three this season.

The Siena Saints will look to build on a 78-71 win over Quinnipiac on the road last time out. Colby Rogers leads the Saints in scoring with 13.7 PPG while Jackson Stormo has 11 PPG and 6.8 RPG as well this season to lead Siena on the glass. Anthony Gaines has 11 PPG with 7.1 RPG of his own to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Siena up to this point this season. As a team, Siena is averaging 66.6 PPG on 42.9% shooting from the field, 34.8% from three and 74% from the foul line while allowing 69.2 PPG on 43.7% shooting from the field and 33.5% from three this season.

Monmouth is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games against a team with a winning home record and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss. Siena is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.

I think this is a game that’s much better to watch than bet. However, I’m leaning towards Siena in this one. Monmouth’s been a solid team this year, especially ATS on the road, going 13-2. The thing is that Siena’s getting overlooked and we can’t forget that the Saints have gone 11-6 in conference play this season. Monmouth won the first meeting by double-digits less than a week ago, and I think the Saints will be out for revenge here. The home team has also won 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two. Give me the Saints at home.
