Niagara vs Siena Betting Prediction 

Even on the road, Niagara is going to find success here. Niagara is averaging 73.8 points per game and they are going to find success scoring. Siena is averaging only 60.6 points per game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Siena won’t finish with more than 60 points and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total.
