The Marist Red Foxes and Fairfield Stags face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at the Webster Bank Arena. When these two teams last faced off in January of 2021 it was Fairfield that won 55-52. These are both teams that have played well to start the season.
Marist comes into this game with a 6-6 record and they have gone 8-4 against the spread. In the last game against Iona, Marist was competitive, but they couldn’t make the plays late in the game and were defeated by three points. Marist is averaging 70.7 points while their defense is giving up 68.3 points per game. Guard Ricardo Wright has been the top player for Marist averaging 13.9 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 41 percent from behind the three point line. Jao Ituka has also been good for Marist averaging 13.1 points while shooting 58 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is Fairfield Stags who sit with an 8-5 record and they have gone 9-3 against the spread. Coming into this game they have lost two games in a row and in the last game against Wagner they scored only 50 points and that led to the 13 points defeat. Fairfield is averaging 74.2 points while their defense is giving up 66.2 points per game. Guard Taj Benning has been the top player for Fairfield averaging 10.9 points while shooting 43.3 percent from the field and 31.7 percent from behind the three point line.
Marinst is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games as an underdog of 0.5-6.5. The Under is 6-1 in Red Foxes last 7 against a team with a winning straight up record. The Over is 5-1 in the Red Foxes last 6 games as a road underdog of 0.5-6.5.
The last time these two teams faced off it was lower scoring, and I expect points are going to be hard to come by again in this game. Look for a slower paced game, and that both teams to struggle to score. Back the under.
