Siena might have a losing record but this program is expected to compete off in the MAAC this season.
The same cannot be said for Rider, which is expected to be in the lower half of the conference.
I am not sure whether this is an official conference game or not. It is a little unorthodox to have conference foes meet at this time of year, especially when they have some more non conference games to go.
Siena won 21 games last season. They placed two players on the preseason all conference team giving them a great chance to unseat Monmouth at the top of the MAAC. All five of their losses have been on the road. Such is the life of a small program.
Neither of those all conference selections was Marquis Wright, a senior guard who is leading the team with 18ppg. He scored 25 at Kansas and is gives the team great depth on the perimeter.
Brett Bisping has not gotten off to a great start. His scoring is down 5ppg from last season and his rebounding is down too. He has back to back double figure board games though so perhaps he is finding his form.
It is also tough for him when they are playing bigger time opponents.
He and Javion Ogunyemi give the Saints what is probably the best frontcourt in the MAAC.
All of the players I have mentioned are seniors who are producing at good levels for Siena to have a strong season. Ogunyemi scored 19 points against Kansas as a reference.
Sophomore shooting guard Nico Clareth gives the Saints a great shot to transition after this season. He is second on the team in scoring at 17ppg even though he is not shooting well. He is coming off a 33 point outing.
Siena beat Fairfield to get off to a 1-0 conference start. This is a great shot to get to 2-0…onward and upward.
The Broncs are not very good and they lost to the same team Siena just beat to open their MAAC season. It was their first home game of the season.
Senior Jimmie Taylor leads the team in scoring but he is off to a terrible shooting start. It is interesting because he is playing 37 minutes per game. I am not worries about burning out the kid but the way he has been putting up bricks you would think they might want to limit him a little
Khalil Thomas is a classic small conference 4 at 6’7″. He is second on the team in scoring and nearly averaging a double-double on the season. He went 14/10 against Fairfield in the loss and will have his hands full with Siena.
The Broncs have had trouble scoring all season long. They defend pretty well but might be bothered by the length of Siena because they don’t have anyone that really protects the rim.

Free Siena Saints vs. Rider Broncs NCAAB Prediction:
Siena is going to be one of the best teams in the MAAC this season. I am not going to bet against them in too many league games.
On the other side, Rider is likely to be a team to fade unless they are facing off against some of the other MAAC bottom feeders.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Siena -4
Siena is going to overwhelm Rider with their talent and experience and get an easy road win.
