Marist is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The over is 8-2 in Marist’s last 10 games and the over is 6-0 in their last 6 Thursday games. Quinnipiac is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The over is 4-0 in Quinnipiac’s last 4 games. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Marist finished the regular season in last place in the MAAC standings, but was able to upset Manhattan in their last game. Quinnipiac was tied for third place in the MAAC and they just beat Marist to end the regular season. Both teams have been playing in some higher scoring games recently, but neither team shoots the ball very well. I think this number is too high for two teams that are shooting 41% and 43% from the field. I like the under here.
