The under is 7-1-1 in Purple Eagles last 9 overall. The under is 36-15-1 in Jaspers last 52 home games. The underdog is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The Niagara Purple Eagles are finding ways to sneak in victories here and there lately, but they're still a brutal club overall that loses on the road by an average of 12.6 points while shooting 41 percent from the field. The Manhattan Jaspers have issues of their own, but they still win at home by an average of 6.5 points and have won eight of the last 10 meetings against Niagara. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Jaspers at home.
