What to Know
The Rider Broncs and the Manhattan Jaspers will face off in an MAAC clash at 2 p.m. ET Feb. 5 at Draddy Gymnasium. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
Rider made easy work of the St. Peter's Peacocks this past Friday and carried off an 82-61 win.
Meanwhile, the Siena Saints typically have all the answers at home, but this past Friday Manhattan proved too difficult a challenge. The Jaspers snuck past the Saints with a 71-66 victory.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Broncs are expected to win a tight contest Sunday. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Rider is now 12-9 while Manhattan sits at 8-13. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Rider is 25th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11 on average. The Jaspers have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 31st most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 14.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
