Iona is a very good
scoring team. The Gaels know how to put up points but they are going to run
into a top 10 defense tonight and will struggle on the road tonight. The Stags
have held nine out of their last ten opponents to under 65 points. Look for
Fairfield to play another night of strong defense and the Stags should be able
to score on a Gaels defense that has struggled this season on the road. Let’s
jump on the home favorite tonight to big up another big conference win and an
ATS cover tonight.
