Niagara is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games The under is 5-1 in Niagara’s last 6 road games. Quinnipiac is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The under is 8-0 in Quinnipiac’s last 8 home games.

These two teams like to play two different styles and the team that is able to impose their style on the other will win. Niagara likes to play at a slower pace, while Quinnipiac likes to get up and down the court much quicker. Neither team rebounds the ball very well, but I like the Niagara defense to be the difference here. I like Niagara.
