Shane’s Free Pick

I trust the Iona offense, and that is going to be the difference here. Siena only scored 52 points in the last game and they are going to really struggle to score again in this game. Look for Iona to get close to their season average of 76.4 points and that is going to be the difference here. Back Iona against the spread.
