Mount St. Mary’s vs. Niagara Prediction

I’m on Niagara here. The Purple Eagles have been the better team in this matchup and are in the running for the MAAC title, but they’ll need a world of help. Mount St. Mary’s is simply playing for pride and momentum with the conference tournament ahead and I don’t know if I can get behind the Mountaineers on the road with such a low number. Give me Niagara at home here.
