The model knows that Marist boasts an efficient offense that features a multitude of players who shoot the ball extremely well. The Red Foxes are collectively shooting 46 percent from the field this season, and senior guard Brian Parker has been lighting up the scoreboard as of late. In fact, Parker is averaging over 16 points in his past four outings, and put up an impressive double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds earlier this season against Army.
The Red Foxes' efficient offense has scored at least 70 points in three of their last four games, and they'll be licking their chops to go against New Hampshire's defense, which is giving up almost 80 points per game in its last four contests.
But just because Marist has won three of its past four games doesn't mean it can cover the spread against the Wildcats.
Despite losing seven straight, New Hampshire has an explosive playmaker who can take over a game. Freshman forward Jayden Martinez enters Wednesday's matinee averaging 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season. He's a difficult matchup for opposing defenders and is coming off his best performance of the season that saw him record 20 points and 13 rebounds against Niagara.
