The Siena Saints will play the Quinnipiac Bobcats in a MAAC game on Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Arena in Hamden, Connecticut. Siena has lost four games in a row, while Quinnipiac has dropped four of their last five. Let’s take a look at the betting matchup and the Siena vs Quinnipiac prediction.

Siena Preview

The Siena Saints are 4-24 (3-14) this year after they lost to Manhattan by a score of 70-68 in their last game. Siena led 39-29 at halftime, but they were out scored 41-29 in the second half for the loss. The Saints shot 42.9% from the field and were +18 in rebounding margin in the game. Siena has lost four in a row and 11 of their last 12 games. The Saints are scoring 60.7 points per game with 36.1 rebounds per game and 10.6 assists per game, while giving up 75.4 points against per game this year. Giovanni Emejuru is averaging 11.2 points per game, 6.2 rebounds per game, and 0.8 steals per game. Siena is shooting 39.8% from the field, 65.3% on free throws, and 27.6% on three pointers this season.

Quinnipiac Preview

The Quinnipiac Bobcats are 20-8 (12-5) this season after they defeated Iona by a score of 82-64 in their last game. Quinnipiac led 37-30 at the half and they scored 45 second half points to pull away for the win. The Bobcats shot 50% from the field and were +14 in rebounding margin in the game. Quinnipiac had lost their previous four games against Rider, Fairfield, Niagara, and Mount St. Mary’s. The Bobcats are scoring 78.5 points per game with 37 rebounds per game and 14 assists per game, while allowing 73.2 points against per game this season. Matt Balanc is averaging 18.1 points per game, 4.8 rebounds per game, and 1.2 assists per game. Quinnipiac is shooting 44.7% from the field, 78.4% on free throws, and 35.2% on three pointers this year. 

Siena vs Quinnipiac Betting Prediction

Quinnipiac was able to snap their losing streak in their last game and they are currently first in the MAAC standings, while Siena is tied for last with Manhattan. The Bobcats have a very strong offensive attack this season, but their defense has allowed at least 80 points in four of their last five games. Siena only has four wins on the season and they are shooting 39.8% from the field. The Saints also struggle on the defensive end of the court, where they are allowing 75.4 points against per game. I do think Quinnipiac will win this game easily, but this is a big number to cover for a team that has struggled in their last five games. Take Siena with the points here.
