St. Peter’s vs Fairfield Betting Prediction

Fairfield comes into this matchup after finishing second in the MAAC this season with a 14-6 record, while St. Peter’s finished tied for third with a 12-8 record. Fairfield has won four games in a row and they are the much better offensive team, scoring 76.5 points per game on 45% field goal shooting. St. Peter’s is only shooting 39.4% from the field, but they are elite on defense, allowing 48 and 60 points in their last two games. Fairfield won the first two meetings with St. Peter’s this season by scores of 76-67 and 64-62, and I like them to get another win here. St. Peter’s has been extremely fortunate to win two very close games so far in the tournament, but I think that ends here. Take the Stags.
