The Quinnipiac Bobcats and the Saint Peter’s Peacocks meet in college basketball action from the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall on Friday night.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats come into this one looking to build on a 77-71 win over Siena last time out. Matt Balanc has a team-high 14.6 PPG while Kevin Marfo has 9.4 PPG with a team-high 10.5 RPG to lead the Bobcats on the glass and Dezi Jones has 11.6 PPG to make up the trio of double-digit scorers for Quinnipiac so far this season. Marfo also has a team-high 3.9 APG for the Bobcats this year. As a team, Quinnipiac is averaging 72.1 PPG on 43.2% shooting from the field, 33.6% from three and 76.1% from the foul line while allowing 72.5 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field and 36.8% from three this season.

The Saint Peter’s Peacocks will try to punch their ticket to the next round after a 77-63 win over Fairfield last time out. Daryl Banks III leads the Peacocks in scoring with 11.3 PPG and Fousseyni Drame also has 7.3 PPG with a team-high 6.7 RPG while KC Ndefo has 10.7 PPG with 6.1 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for the Peacocks this season. Doug Edert also has 8.9 PPG and Matthew Lee leads the Peacocks with 3 APG as well on the year. As a team, Saint Peter’s is averaging 66.9 PPG on 42.9% shooting from the field, 35% from three and 68.1% from the foul line while allowing 62.4 PPG on 39.1% shooting from the field and 30% from three this season.

Quinnipiac is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win while the under is 14-3 in their last 17 neutral site games as an underdog. Saint Peter’s is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall while the under is 35-17 in their last 52 games as a favorite.

I get the case to be made for an underdog like Quinnipiac in one and done spots, especially in the MAAC where there have already been a lot of upsets this season, including the top-seed Iona going down. However, Saint Peter’s is now my team to beat in the MAAC as this Peacocks team does it all and they do it all well. I think the Peacocks win by double-digits so give me Saint Peter’s here.
