Shane’s Free Pick
Rider looked good in the first game, but this is a whole different level of competition. Marquette scored 92 points in the first game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Rider’s offense is going to struggle to get to even 50 points here, and that is going to be the difference here as Marquette is going to get the job done Back Marquette against the spread here.
