Holy Cross is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 Wednesday games. Fairfield is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following an ATS win.

I get that Fairfield has the more impressive resume to this point and are playing a weak Holy Cross team, but this is the biggest number the Stags will have had to try to cover to date and even still, I’m not 100% sold on the Stags yet. On the other hand Holy Cross is capable of hanging or getting blown out. Instead, I’m going to side with the under here as I envision this being a game where points are hard to come by and a game where we struggle to get to 130 let alone 140. Give me the under.
