The Rider Broncs go on the road to oppose the Manhattan Jaspers in MAAC college basketball action on Tuesday.

The Rider Broncs saw a two game winning streak end in in a 75-71 loss at Monmouth on Saturday as a 4.5 point road favorite.

Rider faced a 12 point hole after 20 minutes before a second half comeback fell short of the mark with Monmouth holding a 48%-41.5% shooting edge.

Dimencio Vaughn led the Broncs rally with 15 points, nine rebounds and five steals while Anthony Durham added 12 points and three yanks.

Devine Eke gave Rider eleven points and six boards followed by Stevie Jordan who contributed ten points and five assists.

The Manhattan Jaspers have won consecutive contests for the first time after upending Saint Peter’s 64-50 as a one point home favorite.

Manhattan jumped to a ten point advantage at the break behind a 39.6%-37.5% shooting edge with six more makes from distance.

Samir Stewart poured in 19 points and recorded five steals for the Jaspers followed by a ten point effort by Nehemiah Mack.

Tyler Reynolds gave Manhattan nine points while Christian Hinckson and Warren Williams netted seven points apiece. 

Rider Broncs are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games and Rider Broncs are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. Manhattan Jaspers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games and Manhattan Jaspers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. Over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Manhattan and Rider Broncs are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

Manhattan has some dreadful numbers but if they can muddy the waters the cover might be there for the taking…

Pick:
Manhattan +6.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
