Manhattan vs Marist Game Info

2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
Manhattan Jaspers (3-7, 1-0 MAAC) vs. Marist Red Foxes 4-5, 0-0 MAAC)
Date: Monday, Dec. 19, 2022
Time: 7 p.m. ET
Venue: McCann Arena — Poughkeepsie, NY
Coverage: ESPN+

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Monday, Dec. 19, including an MAAC showdown between the Manhattan Jaspers and Marist Red Foxes.

After a .500 start through six games, Manhattan has been on a losing skid. Friday's 78-67 loss to Central Connecticut marked the Jaspers' fourth consecutive loss. Meanwhile, Marist hopes to rebound with a victory after a 72-70 loss to Boston University snapped the former's win streak at three.

Can Manhattan stop its losing ways at McCann Arena? Or will Marsit prove that the loss to Boston University was nothing more than a fluke?

Manhattan vs Marist Prediction & Pick

Marist typically welcomes a matchup against Manhattan, having won seven of the last nine games against its MAAC rival. The Red Foxes beat up the Jaspers, 74-56, in their last collision back in February and I'm expecting a similar result tonight.

Manhattan has truly struggled during its losing skid, being outscored by an average of 16.3 points. Don't expect that to change considering how the Jaspers are 2-10 straight up in their last 12 away games and boast a minus-12.2 road scoring margin this season.

Marist isn't perfect, but at least it's shown that it can win games lately. The Red Foxes have also covered the spread in four of their last six home games and with how poorly Manhattan has been playing, I don't see Marist having an issue winning tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Marist: 70 | Manhattan: 63

Manhattan vs Marist Betting Trends

- Manhattan is 2-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games against the MAAC.

- The total has hit the over in five of Marist's last six home games against Manhattan.

Manhattan vs Marist Best Bet

Marist has been a spread darling when it comes to games involving Manhattan, covering in seven of the last nine meetings. What's even more impressive is that the Red Foxes won five of those games outright by at least five or more points.

Needless to say, I can see Marist covering tonight's 4.5-point spread. The Red Foxes have covered the spread in three of their last four games, whereas the Jaspers are 1-3 ATS in their last four. Furthermore, Manhattan has also failed to cover the spread in four of its last six games against fellow MAAC programs.

With Manhattan also showing no signs of breaking out of its funk, backing Marist on the spread is the way to go.

Bet: Marist -4.5 (-110)
