Fairfield @ Siena
Current Records: Fairfield 8-10; Siena 13-6
What to Know
The Siena Saints are 13-3 against the Fairfield Stags since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Sunday. The Saints and Fairfield will face off in an MAAC battle at 2 p.m. ET at MVP Arena. Siena is out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between Siena and the Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Siena wrapped it up with a 72-57 win at home.
Meanwhile, Fairfield was able to grind out a solid victory over the Canisius Golden Griffins this past Friday, winning 67-58.
Siena is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (6-3), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The wins brought the Saints up to 13-6 and the Stags to 8-10. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Siena has allowed their opponents to shoot 45.90% from the floor on average, which is the 34th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Fairfield has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.60% percent of their shots, which is the 13th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
