I had considered the points with Quinnipiac as the Bobcats have been profitable for us this season, but the fact here is that the Bobcats just can’t buy a result right now, and a lot of the losses aren’t pretty for Quinnipiac either. Rider hasn’t been flashy all the time, but the Broncs have gotten the job done more often than not and I just think that Rider is just the better option in this matchup so I’ll lay the points with Rider here.
