Mount St. Marys is 9-10 ATS this season, 4-4 ATS after a win, and 4-6 ATS on the road. Wagner is 12-7 ATS this season, 9-3 ATS after a win, and 6-3 ATS at home.
Wagner has been solid at home this year, boasting a 7-2 record. They also ended the year hot, winning 12 of their last 13.The Mountaineers have not been great on the road, going 4-6 during the regular season. Wagner won both meetings on the road earlier in the year, and the first was a blowout. I do expect this to be a competitive game, but Wagner will find a way to pull away at the end. Give me the Seahawks to cover at home.
