Saint Peter’s Peacocks vs Rider Broncs prediction

This line has flipped since the opener, and I'm not buying it. The Rider Broncs enter the tournament playing the better basketball and haven't lost a game since February 10. Rider also beat Saint Peter’s twice this season, which includes a win a week ago. Rider beat the Saint Peter’s Peacocks on the road in January as 6.5 point underdogs. The Saint Peter’s Peacocks are coming off back to back bad blowout losses. I'll fade the public and grab the free bucket with the Rider Broncs in the MAAC Championship Quarterfinal.

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