Fairleigh Dickinson allowed Long Island University to shoot 44.4% from the field and 44.4% from beyond the arc in the loss.

Robert Morris comes into this game ranked 241st in scoring offense, 48th in 3P-FG%, and 115th in scoring defense.

Fairleigh Dickinson comes into this match-up ranked 154th in scoring offense, 300th in scoring defense, and 280th in defensive FG%.

Fairleigh Dickinson has struggled ATS at home and although the Knights were able to pick up a 72-71 win on the road just last week against the Colonials, I just can’t trust their defense that has really struggled on the season. Robert Morris is a solid shooting team, especially from beyond the arc, and as I they’ve had success on the road against the Knights, I’m taking Robert Morris to cover this small road spread. Good Luck!
