Score: 54 - 57
Point Spread: -8/-110 Canisius
Friday's winner is Canisius over Siena. This is my MAAC 97% Angle Play.
Canisius shoots a remarkable 72.6% from the line and 46.1% from 3-point land. The Griffins are 3-1 vs. conference opponents on the road this season. The GGs beat Boston, St. Bonny's (as a 'dog), Buffalo, Fairfield (as a 'dog), Marist twice, and Temple by 10 (as an 11 1/2 point 'dog). They lost, but played Syracuse very tough, pushed UNLV plus 15, and covered vs. Detroit. Forward, Chris Marhertz pulls down 8.7 RPG, has 13 steals, and 15 blocks already. The other four starters, Baron, Washington, Sosa, and Heath are combining for 51.5 PPG. The quartet can all rebound, steal, and have tallied 150 assists themselves. Siena ranks 315th on FG%, shooting a mere 38.2%. The Saints are 0-6 at home this season, being outscored by an average of 8.8 PPG. In their current 11 game losing streak, Siena got thumped by a total of 125 points. As a favorite, they lost outright to who…Northern Kentucky. Outside of Forward, O.D. Anosike, the Saints have no rebounders let alone any strength in the paint. They turn the ball over a ton and just don’t have the talent, depth, or the bench here. The favorite in this series is 16-6-1 ATS their L23 meetings. The Road Team is 5-1 ATS their L6 meetings. The Saints are 1-5 ATS their L6 games played vs. teams with a winning record, 1-4 ATS their L5 games played vs. the MAAC, and 1-6 ATS their L7 games played overall. Take Canisius. Thank you.
