The Iona Gaels and the Marist Red Foxes meet in college basketball MAAC-tion from McCann Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The Iona Gaels will look to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their last four games following a 64-57 win over Fairfield last time out.

As a team, Iona is averaging 67.5 points per game on 41.4% shooting from the field, 30.8% from behind the arc and 73% from the foul line this season.

Tyler Saint-Furcy led the Red Foxes with 17 points on 5 of 10 shooting with 4 threes while Michael Cubbage and Braden Bell each had 11 points with Bell shooting 5 of 9 with 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals while Cubbage had 13 rebounds and a team-high 4 assists for the double-double.

Iona is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following a win while he under is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. Marist is 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 13-6-1 in their last 20 games overall.

I’m tempted to take the points with a home dog a lot of the time, but the fact is that Marist is one of the worst offensive teams in the country and are actually 0-6 SU at home this season and 1-5 ATS on their own floor. Iona hasn’t been great, but the Gaels have been picking up wins here and there, and half of their wins have come on the road this season. I’ll lay the points with Iona in this one.
