Score: 79 - 82
Point Spread: -2/-106 Canisius
Play on Canisius Monday 2:00 PM EST
From what I have seen leading into conference play and the New Year, Canisius is the better team here and are playing on their homecourt.
One common opponent that both Siena and Canisius has played was Saint Bonaventure and Canisius beat the Bonnies straight up while Siena lost by 7.
Canisius comes into this game having won their last 5 games, averaging almost 90 ppg as they have been shooting the ball very well. Canisius is also a solid free throw shooting team.
Siena has lost four of their last 5 games overall, shooting only 40% from the floor, (20% from the 3 point line). They still haven’t won a true road game this season, and haven’t scored more than 74 points on the road in their last 5 road games.
While Siena has a slight edge in experience, Canisius has the more talented players and they are fitting into Reggie Witherspoon, their new coach, offensive system.
Canisius lost both meetings last year. That makes double revenge in a series where they had won the previous 6 meetings. They are in a good spot this afternoon to get that revenge. The home team has covered 70% of the last 10 meetings and the favorite has covered 73% of the last 31 meetings.
