Quinnipiac vs. Saint Peter’s Prediction

I’m on Quinnipiac here. I think the Peacocks are a solid team and they’ve been to the NCAA tournament so they know the pressures of these high-stakes matchups. However, the Bobcats have been the class of the MAAC for much of the season and they got a day of rest in between their last game and this one, the benefit of being the top-seeded team in the tournament. I’ll back the Bobcats in this one.
