  • Using the Action Network's betting tools, we break down how sharp bettors are playing the small MAAC game between Niagara and Quinnipiac (7 p.m. ET).

A mere 11 college basketball games grace the board on Friday — a far cry from the 54 we were blessed with last night. Also missing are the high-profile games, as the best game of the evening is Maryland-Iowa.

But one of the smaller games this evening is seeing some #RandomSharpAction.

We have to head up into New England for this Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference battle between Niagara and Quinnipiac.

The Waterfalls of Niagara — OK, they’re the Purple Eagles — are one of the worst teams in the nation per KenPom’s Adjusted Efficiency ratings. They’re ranked 302nd out of 353. Niagara is just 3-10 overall, but have actually been kind to spread bettors at 7-6 ATS.

Quinnipiac is cashing on both the moneyline and spread this year, with a 7-5 straight up record and 8-4 record against the spread. They’re nearly 100 spots higher in KenPom’s rankings at 217 — not good, but not bad for the MAAC.

Given Niagara’s ineptitude, they opened as nine-point dogs on the road, but is it the favorite or dog that sharps are usually infatuated with?
