Fairfield @ MONMOUTH -2 7 pm, Niagara @ SIENA -4.5 7 pm
Fairfield @ MONMOUTH -2 7 pm. We’re going to keep this short and sweet because you need at least a little time to get your wagers in. After a dismal start, Monmouth (4-14) has won four of its last six and is 3-2 in conference. All these MAAC teams are fairly close together, but we think that giving Monmouth the teaser 5 points gives them the cushion they’ll need. We’re going to pair that with Niagara @ SIENA -4.5 7 pm. Siena (6-11) is the slightly better team. Niagara had a road upset of Pitt on Dec. 3, but has now lost four of its last five and is 1-3 in conference. It concerns me that this is a must-win for the Purple Eagles, but his seems like a good week for Saints.
Pick: MONMOUTH +3 over Fairfield paired with SIENA +.5 over Niagara.
