The Marist Red Foxes are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.6 rebounds per game. The Marist Red Foxes have lost six of their last eight road games.
The Canisius Golden Griffins need a win after splitting their last six games. The Canisius Golden Griffins are averaging 69.9 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.7 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Malik Johnson is averaging 13.4 points and 6.2 rebounds while Majesty Brandon is averaging 12.8 points and 1.3 assists.

The Red Foxes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Golden Griffins are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The under is 9-4 in Red Foxes last 13 road games. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Marist Red Foxes obviously have issues this season with an offense that can't score, and their 9-10 ATS record doesn't help their case in the betting world. The problem is the Canisius Golden Griffins aren't lighting the world on fire, as they're being outscored on the season, outscored in their last five games and are only winning at home by an average of one point. The Canisius Golden Griffins are 4-4 ATS at home and 10-9-2 ATS on the season. Because neither of these teams can get out of their own way, I want the free points in my pocket.
