The Seahawks are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Terriers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games, however, are 6-5-1 ATS at home on the season.

Wagner comes into this game ranked 258th in scoring margin, 282nd in FG%, and 319th in scoring defense.

St. Francis (BKN) comes into this match-up ranked 212nd in scoring offense, 245th in scoring defense, and 42nd in turnover margin.

Wagner has been able to pick up a couple of much needed wins at home this past week, however, it’s been a real struggle for the Seahawks on the road this season as Wagner has posted just a 2-12 road record. St. Francis (BKN) should be able to have success at home agianst Wagner’s below average defense and as the Terriers were able to win by a 69-64 margin at Wagner earlier this season, I think the Terriers do enough to cover this mid-range spread. Good Luck!
