9* CBB ATS Play
Manhattan vs. Siena,
02/01/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 63 - 66
Point Spread: +4½/-108 Siena
The Manhattan Jaspers were a huge surprise and a team that covered the spread very consistently last year. That was a year ago though, and things are completely different for them this year.
The biggest difference is that Manhattan is now playing without star George Beamon. Beamon averaged 19 points per game last year, and he was the man who ran this offense.
Without Beamon, the Jaspers are averaging only 57.7 points per game this year. They had an usually good shooting percentage in their early season 75-55 win over Siena.
I don’t think they’ll shoot the ball that well again in this one.
Siena isn’t a very good team, but they are much better on their home floor. The Saints beat Canisius and only lost by four to Iona at home, and those are two of the top teams in the MAAC.
Siena is 1-9 ATS away from home, but they are 4-3 ATS at home this season.
The Saints are getting 4.5 points against a team that they could easily beat.
The underdog is 5-2 in the last 7 meeting between these teams. Grab the 4.5 points on the home dog here.
Take Siena. 9* Play on Siena +4.5. Good Luck, Razor Ray.
