YESTERDAY 2:06 PM

You would think a school called The Citadel would be better at defending, but that's not the case with the Bulldogs. Still, there's value on them here in this matchup against a Samford team that played a weak nonconference schedule and has lost three straight.

WIN
YESTERDAY 2:02 PM

I'm a fan of taking bad teams coming off a big loss, particularly when their playing a team that isn't exactly great itself, and that's the situation here. Manhattan is 3-13 and just lost to Monmouth by 16, and now it's taking on a St. Peter's team that's only 5-11 itself and has had difficulty scoring in conference play. It won't be a pretty game by any means, but there's value on the dog here.

LOSS
YESTERDAY 1:58 PM

Marshall has the best offense in Conference USA, which is why it's favored by so much against an FAU team that has picked up wins over top 100 KenPom teams like UCF, Illinois and Old Dominion. What makes Marshall difficult to trust as a double-digit favorite, however, is its defense, which hasn't been good all year, and has gotten a bit worse in conference play.

LOSS
YESTERDAY 1:54 PM

These are two bad teams as Towson enters this game having lost six of its last seven while Drexel's lost six of eight. The difference is that while neither team is good, Drexel is particularly horrid on defense, ranking 345th of 353 teams in KenPom's defensive efficiency.

LOSS
YESTERDAY 1:50 PM

The Niagara offense has fared much better since the beginning of conference play and Siena enters this game with one of the worst defenses in the country, making it hard to trust as a favorite.
