Shane’s Free Pick
Wagner is not a strong offensive team and they are going to really slow down the pace here. Wagner is averaging 63.5 points but their defense is good giving up 61.5 points per game. They are going to keep the pace slow, and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under to cash here with ease.
