Niagara held their opponent to 30% shooting from the field and was +7 in rebounding margin in the win. Marcus Hammond led the Purple Eagles with 27 points and 5 rebounds in the game.

Manhattan is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games. The over is 7-2 in Manhattan’s last 9 road games. Niagara is 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The over is 4-1 in Niagara’s last 5 home games. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Niagara will be full of confidence in this game after beating Manhattan 72-63 just a few games ago. Niagara plays at a slower pace than Manhattan does, so they will really want to slow the game down here. I am taking Niagara at home in this one.
