The Saint Peter's Peacocks have been downright awful offensively this season, and those troubles carryover to the road where they're shooting just 31.3 percent from the field and losing by an average of 21 points. Things aren't going to improve going up against this successful and physical defense of the St. John's Red Storm. This is a lot of points to lay in an early game and there's a possible lookahead spot with St. John's having West Virginia on deck. Still, this should be a quick blowout win for the Red Storm.
