The Bobcats are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Metro Atlantic Athletic, 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Peacocks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Metro Atlantic Athletic, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

The Saint Peter's Peacocks have won six of the last nine meetings against Quinnipiac, but they're not playing good basketball at the moment and playing at home hasn't helped much. The Quinnipiac Bobcats beat Saint Peter's by 19 points a little over a month ago and they enter this contest 10-4 ATS on the road this season. The Saint Peter's Peacocks are 4-7-1 ATS at home this season and have lost four of their last five home games outright. The Quinnipiac Bobcats are the better team by quite a bit, so while on the road in a near toss-up, I still have to give them the edge.
