Manhattan  are 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings and favorite is 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings.

I don’t like laying the points with the Peacocks and I don’t like Manhattan with the points either…

Saint Peter's -6

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.
