The Canisius Golden Griffins and Fairfield Stags face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown in the MAAC Tournament at the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall. When these two teams faced off on February 14th it was Fairfield that won 80-76. 

Jesus Cruz was the top player for Fairfield scoring 25 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Canisius was the top player for Malek Green scoring 19 points. 

Canisius comes into this game with a 11-20 record overall and they have gone 15-14-1 against the spread. The Golden Griffins have won three games in a row, including the last game against Siena where they won 67-64. Canisius is averaging 69.1 points while their defense is giving up 71.5 points per game. Armon Harried has been the top player for Canisius averaging 11.3 points while shooting 35.3 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players that are averaging at least 11 points per game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Fairfield Stags who sit with a 14-17 record overall and they have gone 16-14 against the spread. In the last game against Saint Peter’s the offense could only score 41 points, and that led to the 16 point defeat. Fairfield is averaging 67.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 66.1 points per game. The top player for Fairfield has been Taj Benning who is averaging 10.7 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field and 31.1 percent from behind the three point line. Supreme Cook is also averaging 10.3 points while shooting 52.7 percent from the field. 

Canisius is 1-9 against the spread in their last 10 games played on a neutral site. The under is 4-0-1 in Canisius last five games played on Tuesday. The under is 4-0 in Fairfield’s last four games. 

The trends point towards the under, and that is going to hit in this game. I don’t expect Fairfield’s offense is going to be as strong in this game, and the pace of this game is going to be slower. Back the under to cash with ease.
