Iona vs Fairfield Betting Prediction

Fairfield comes into this matchup after a great regular season, where they went 14-6 in MAAC play and finished in second place. The Stags are scoring 76.8 points per game and they have scored at least 85 points in three of their last five. Iona barely got by Manhattan in their first game of the tournament on Tuesday, which is not a great sign for this game. Iona did win both regular season meetings with Fairfield by scores of 78-67 and 91-82, but both of those games were months ago. Fairfield is the better team in this matchup and they played great over the last 10 games. Take the Stags here.
