Fairfield Stags vs Iona Gaels Predictions 1/13/2023


The latest game saw Iona’s four-game winning streak end, dropping it out of first place in the Metro Atlantic. The Iona Gaels will now try to recover in back-to-back home games.


Iona was down 42-28 at the break against Quinnipiac and never got closer than 23 points. The Gaels made 19 of 64 (29.7%) field goals, including 6 of 26 (23.1%) from the three-point range.


In addition, they lost 42 to 34 rebounding. That won’t work on the road against the majority of opponents, particularly during conference play. The Bobcats had a 32-point lead and shot 42.6 percent from the field.


Iona scores 76.6 points while shooting 46.1 percent from the field and 33.6 percent from beyond the arc. The Gaels average 33.3 rebounds per game and shoot 74.7 percent from the line, which ranks 53rd in Division 1.


According to KenPom, their schedule-adjusted offensive efficiency ranks 68th nationally. Daniss Jenkins, a junior guard, leads Iona with an average of 16.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 4.6 rebounds.


The Gaels also rely on senior forward Quinn Slazinski, junior forward Nelly Junior Joseph, and sophomore guard Walter Clayton Jr., who each average 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 1.5 assists for the team (12.2 PPG and 6.5 RPG).


Iona has the 38th-lowest opponent 3PT% in the nation, giving up 66.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting, including 29.8 percent from distance. 


  • The Iona Gaels are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Iona’s last 5 contests with Fairfield. 
  • The Gaels are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 matches at home.

Fairfield Stags vs Iona Gaels. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Iona Gaels.


The Stags are 0-5 ATS in their previous five road matches after three or more straight home games, while the Gaels are 5-0 ATS in their last five home matches against teams with losing road records.


The Iona team is ranked in the top 75 in defensive efficiency, and the Stags are a weak club with a terrible offense. The Gaels also limit their opponents’ 3-point shooting percentages to less than 30%.


Iona won’t be losing this game at home after a disappointing performance against Quinnipiac as long as they handle the ball properly, as they did so well this season.


The team led by Rick Pitino is a strong candidate to win the MAAC and ought to give its NCAA Tournament opponent a fright.


Clayton Jr. and Slazinski, two of its major players, missed the last several games and are questionable for Friday’s game.


Without them, covering this spread could be challenging, but Iona will succeed as long as one or both are prepared. The Iona Gaels will win to a predicted score of 74-62.
