Fairleigh Dickinson @ Wagner
Current Records: Fairleigh Dickinson 15-13; Wagner 13-11
What to Know
The Wagner Seahawks and the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights are even-steven against one another since February of 2016 (9-9), but not for long. Wagner and the Knights will face off in a Northeast battle at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Spiro Sports Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
Wagner was just a bucket shy of a victory on Thursday and fell 58-57 to the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils.
Meanwhile, Fairleigh Dickinson came up short against the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Thursday, falling 94-86.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Wagner is expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 3-8 against the spread when favored.
The losses put Wagner at 13-11 and the Knights at 15-13. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Seahawks have only been able to knock down 40.60% percent of their shots, which is the sixth lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Fairleigh Dickinson has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 48.80% from the floor on average, which is the 359th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
