The Fairfield Stags and Quinnipiac Bobcats meet Sunday in college basketball action at the People's United Center.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats look for a nice home win to get a game above a .500 record. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are averaging 69.4 points on 40.2 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Cameron Young is averaging 19.6 points and 4.4 rebounds while Rich Kelly is averaging 11.3 points and 4.6 assists. Tyrese Williams is dishing 2.2 assists and Jacob Rigoni is grabbing 3.1 rebounds.

The Stags are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win, 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bobcats are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 Sunday games, 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Metro Atlantic Athletic and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Fairfield Stags are quite battle tested on the road this season, but they're still a team that's shooting under 40 percent from the field on the road. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are winning by an average margin of 5.3 points at home this season and are an impressive 6-2 ATS when a favorite. The road team has had a ton of success in meetings between Fairfield and Quinnipiac, but this is a spot where the Bobcats should be able to cover the small number.

Pick:
Quinnipiac Bobcats -4
