Tykei Greene is averaging 11.2 points and 5.9 rebounds while Samir Stewart is averaging 9.5 points and 1.4 rebounds. Pauly Paulicap is grabbing 5.9 rebounds and Ethan Lasko is dishing one assist. The Manhattan Jaspers are shooting 32.5 percent from beyond the arc and 62.6 percent from the free throw line. The Manhattan Jaspers are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.6 rebounds per game. The Manhattan Jaspers have split their last eight road games.
The Marist Red Foxes need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Marist Red Foxes are averaging 58.7 points on 38.3 percent shooting and allowing 66.8 points on 41.6 percent shooting. Michael Cubbage is averaging 10.1 points and 2.3 assists while Matt Turner is averaging 9.1 points and 2.3 rebounds. Tyler Sagl is grabbing 1.3 rebounds and Matthew Herasme is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Marist Red Foxes are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 58.6 percent from the free throw line. The Marist Red Foxes are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.1 rebounds per game. The Marist Red Foxes have lost five of their last six home games.
The Jaspers are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss. The Red Foxes are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 Wednesday games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. The under is 7-3 in Jaspers last 10 overall. The under is 4-1 in Red Foxes last 5 home games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Neither of these teams are teams I'm running to the window to bet on, but the Marist Red Foxes are far more unbackable of the two. The Marist Red Foxes lose by an average of 8.1 points on the season, 5.3 points at home and 5.8 points in their last five games. Marist does little right at either end of the floor, and it's covered just two of its seven home games. This pick has to be the Manhattan Jaspers and the reasonable chalk or pass. I want nothing to do with the Marist Red Foxes.
