Iona vs. Mount St. Mary’s Prediction

I’m on Iona in this game. I just think that the Gaels are the better team and they’ve definitely opened some eyes in what was expected to be a rebuild year this season, but it’s been far from that. The Mount has been able to provide value in some spots, but I think they’re outmatched here and with such a low line, I think Iona gets the win and cover on the road in this one.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
