The Manhattan Jaspers and Siena Saints meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Times Union Center.
The Manhattan Jaspers could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Manhattan Jaspers are averaging 55.9 points on 39.2 percent shooting and allowing 65.1 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Pauly Paulicap is averaging 8.5 points and 3.9 rebounds while Warren Williams is averaging 8.3 points and 3.7 rebounds. Thomas Capuano is grabbing 2.5 rebounds and Nehemiah Mack is dishing 2.6 assists. The Manhattan Jaspers are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 54.9 percent from the free throw line. The Manhattan Jaspers are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.3 rebounds per game. The Manhattan Jaspers have lost nine of their last 10 road games.
The Siena Saints look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Siena Saints are averaging 65 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 69.2 points on 49.4 percent shooting. Evan Fisher is averaging 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds while Jalen Pickett is averaging 14.8 points and 7.3 assists. Kevin Degnan is grabbing 5.7 rebounds and Manny Camper is dishing one assist. The Siena Saints are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 61.7 percent from the free throw line. The Siena Saints are allowing 40 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.9 rebounds per game. The Siena Saints have split their last six home games.
The Jaspers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss. The Saints are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 vs. Metro Atlantic Athletic and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS win. The Jaspers are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Siena. The under is 4-1 in Saints last 5 overall. The under is 43-19-2 in Jaspers last 64 overall.
The Manhattan Jaspers are a team that's falling apart, as they've lost six of their last eight games and are being outscored by an average of 11.6 points during their last five games due to 37.4 percent shooting. On the road this season, Manhattan is losing by an average of 13.9 points thanks to 38 percent shooting. The Siena Saints aren't the most consistent team in the world, but they're in much better shape than the Jaspers and a lot of their success this season has come at home. I'll lay the chalk here, even if it's more of fade from Manhattan than anything else.
