St. Bonaventure vs Siena Game Info

2022-23 NCAA College Basketball Regular Season Game
St. Bonaventure Bonnies (6-5, 0-2 Away) vs. Siena Saints (5-5, 2-1 Home)
Date: Monday, Dec. 19, 2022
Time: 7 p.m. ET

Coverage: ESPN+

The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Monday, Dec. 19, including a showdown between the St. Bonaventure Bonnies and Siena Saints at 7 p.m. ET.

St. Bonaventure hasn't been able to establish consistency lately, losing for the third time in four games with Friday's 71-58 loss to Florida Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, Siena hasn't had any better luck, picking up losses in each of its last two games — including a 75-64 defeat at the hands of Delaware just over a week ago.

So, which of these slumping teams will be the first to break out of their respective skid?

St. Bonaventure vs Siena Prediction & Pick

St. Bonaventure has dominated this head-to-head rivalry, winning 26 of the 34 previous matchups, as well as four of the last five. Having said that, it's hard to trust the Bonnies during their latest struggles, averaging just 58.7 points on 36.1% shooting over their last three games.

Although Siena has had its struggles too, it's averaged 10 more points (68.7 PPG) over that stretch on better shooting (40.1%), too. It's also worth noting that the Saints have a plus-5.0 scoring margin at home, whereas the Bonnies are an uninspiring minus-5.6 on the road.

Throw in that St. Bonaventure is winless on the road and Siena has won two straight at home, and I'm backing the Saints to emerge victorious tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Siena: 67 | St. Bonaventure: 63

St. Bonaventure vs Siena Best Bet

It wasn't always this way, but the latest St. Bonaventure-Siena matchups have produced some low-scoring battles. Along with the total going under in seven of their last nine meetings, the last four collisions have seen an average of 129.3 points scored, falling below 131.5 in all but one of those tilts.

Throw in the two sides averaging a combined 127.4 points in their last three games this season and it's easy to see why the under is the right call tonight.
