Mount St. Mary's came out on top in a nail-biter against the St. Francis (Pa.) Red Flash on Saturday, sneaking past 54-52.

Mount St. Mary's is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take Mount St. Mary's against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.

Mount St. Mary's is now 12-12 while the Terriers sit at 8-17. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Mountaineers are stumbling into the contest with the 51st fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 66.3 on average. St. Francis (N.Y.) has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 41.20% percent of their shots, which is the 39th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
