The Monmouth Hawks and Quinnipiac Bobcats meet Saturday in the college basketball MAAC Tournament quarterfinal at the Times Union Center.

The Monmouth Hawks enter this game splitting their last eight games. The Monmouth Hawks are averaging 64.2 points on 40.7 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Ray Salnave is averaging 12.2 points and 2.8 assists while Deion Hammond is averaging 11.7 points and 2.1 rebounds. Mustapha Traore is grabbing 5.3 rebounds and Louie Pillari is grabbing 1.8 rebounds. The Monmouth Hawks are shooting 29.6 percent from beyond the arc and 68.6 percent from the free throw line. The Monmouth Hawks are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.7 rebounds per game. The Monmouth Hawks have won four of their last five non-home games.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats enter this game splitting their last six games. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are averaging 73.1 points on 42.3 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Cameron Young is averaging 23 points and five rebounds while Rich Kelly is averaging 13.4 points and 4.2 assists. Tyrese Williams is dishing 2.5 assists and Jacob Rigoni is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 71.7 percent from the free throw line. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.2 rebounds per game. The Quinnipiac Bobcats have won their last five non-home games.

The Hawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The Bobcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 7-1 in Bobcats last 8 neutral site games. The under is 22-9-1 in Hawks last 32 neutral site games.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats have won the last three meetings against Monmouth, including a comfortable 12-point road win on the road a couple of weeks ago. The Monmouth Hawks can really stink up the joint offensively, and it has a lot to do with why they're being outscored by an average of 10.1 points in non-home games. Quinnipiac has the advantage in just about every area in this contest and seems to have Monmouth's number based on the two previous meetings this season. I'll lay the bucket.

Pick:
Quinnipiac -3
