College Basketball Free Money Giveaway: Iona @ Siena

Darren MontgomeryContributor IJanuary 26, 2009

As of 12:00 AM CST the boys' in Vegas have this Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference battle set at Siena -10.5 as the home favorite. 

Iona is a poor offensive club averaging only a meager 64.8 PPG, with their top scorer Gary "Big Man" Springer leading the way with a healthy 12 PPG, along with the 7 foot wonder Jonathan Huffman the Gaels do retain a slight size advantage in the blocks. 

While being a little over-matched down low, Siena will more then make up for it with their superior Guard play and fast paced up-and-down style of ball.  Edwin "Nice Guy" Ubiles leads the Saints with almost 15 PPG and to compliment "Nice Guy" they've got Alex "Benjamin" Franklin cashing in 13 points and 7 rebounds per game. 

Overall this MAAC contest will boil down to Siena's ability to run-n-gun and Iona's inability to score the ball.  Iona is clearly overmanned in this contest warranting a 10 1/2 point head start and I don't think they have what it takes to keep that lead on the road.

Play Siena -10.5

More to come... Season Record (1-0)
