Marist received ten points and three pulls from Ryan Funk followed by Darius Hines and Aleksandar Dozic with a combined 13 points.

Manhattan are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games and Manhattan are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Tuesday games and under is 39-18-2 in Manhattan last 59 overall. Under is 9-3-1 in Marist last 13 Tuesday games and under is 7-3 in Marist last 10 overall. Under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.

The Red Foxes are the better team but I’d rather take the points or find another game to bet…

Manhattan +8

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.
