The Niagara Purple Eagles have been a bad team for most of the season and it gets worse on the road where they lose by an average of 13.3 points and allow 47.4 percent shooting from the field. The Saint Peter's Peacocks are in a bit of a funk right now, but they still win at home by an average of 2.8 points despite shooting under 40 percent from the field, and they're 11-5 ATS on the season. There's better options on Sunday's CBB card, but I'd lay the chalk with the Peacocks if forced to pick.
