The Fairfield Stags (11-19, CONF 7-12) and Manhattan Jaspers (12-16, 8-11) face off in a Metro Atlantic Athletic showdown at the Draddy Gymnasium. Fairfield beat Manhattan 68-60 earlier this season, and the home team has won the four games played between the two squads. 

Fairfield have had some real struggles this season and coming into this game they have lost four games in a row. Fairfield was underdogs in three of those games and they covered the spread in each of those games. 

Fairfield hasn’t been a great offensive team and away from home they are averaging only 57.7 points per game while shooting 37.9 percent from the field.

Fairfield is led by guard Landon Taliaferro who is averaging 12 points while shooting 35.2 percent from the field. 

Much like Fairfield, Manhattan has also had a lot of struggles this season and coming into this game they have lost six of the last seven games. In each of the six losses, they also failed to cover the spread. 

At home this season Manhattan has a 7-5 record and the defense has been the difference giving up 60.8 points per game. If Manhattan wants to come away with a win in this game, the defense is going to need to be strong. 

Manhattan doesn’t really have a real star player, but they have six players who are averaging at least seven points a game. In the next week, Manhattan needs a player or two to step up if they want to make a run.

The under is 21-6 in Fairfield’s last 27 road games. The under is 39-12 in Fairfield’s last 51 games overall. The under is 22-4 in Fairfield’s last 26 games as an underdog. The under is 35-16-1 in Manhattan’s last 52 home games. The home team is 17-4 against the spread in the last 21 meetings between Fairfield and Manhattan.

Fairfield plays in ultra low scoring games and it’s not going to be any different in this game. Look for a slow-paced game with both teams having issues getting to 50 points. Back the under to cash.
