03/01/2013 21:00 EDT,
Score: 31 - 34
Point Spread: 0/-105 Fairfield
The Manhattan Jaspers are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games against a team with a winning road record. The Jaspers offense averages 59.2 points per game ranking them 328th among division one teams. They are also a poor rebounding team pulling in 32.5 boards per game. They are in serious trouble tonight because they face a Fairfield team that has one of the best defenses in college basketball. The Stags are allowing 60.1 points per game ranking them 36th among division one teams. You should always play against home teams as an underdog or pick like Manhattan when they are a poor passing team averaging 12 or less assists per game in March games. This system is 40-15 (72.7%) over the last 5 seasons. You should also play on road teams as a favorite or pick that are forcing 14 or less turnovers per game in March games. This situation is 60-28 (68.2%) over the last five seasons. This is a revenge game for Fairfield who suffered an embarrassing loss to Manhattan just over two weeks ago. That game was played at Fairfield and postponed twice due to weather. The Stags did not have a chance to prepare for that game which resulted in a lopsided loss, but it is one that should not be held against them. Fairfield is the better team and they have performed much better against common opponents. The Stags should have no problem getting their revenge against the Jaspers tonight.
