The road team is 20-7 ATS in these two teams last 27 head to head meetings.
This should be an entertaining game between two teams that are in the bottom half of the MAAC standings. Fairfield had lost seven games in a row, before defeating Marist in their last game. Rider is coming off of a win and has had a few games decided by one possession or overtime. Neither team is very good, but I am taking Rider at home with the points.
