The road team is 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.

Both of these teams have been really good against the number this season and the numbers statistically in terms of production are pretty close. However, Quinnipiac is the much better team offensively, and while the Stags have done well on the defensive end a lot of the time, the offense doesn’t always hold up their end of the bargain. Quinnipiac’s had a rough couple of outings lately, but the Bobcats should be ready and focused and pick up the win and cover here.
