Fairfield shot 49% from the field, but only 57.1% on free throws in the win. TJ Long led the Stags with 14 points and 2 rebounds in the game.

Rider is 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. The over is 7-2 in Rider’s last 9 Thursday games. Fairfield is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 3-0-1 in Fairfield’s last 4 home games. The road team is 21-7 ATS in these two teams last 28 head to head meetings.
These two teams match up pretty evenly, which should make this a very interesting game. Both teams are 7-11 within the conference and are tied with two other teams for 6th in the MAAC. I am taking the over in this game because I think it is a few points to low and Rider has struggled on defense at times this season.
