Against The Spread Pick
The Dayton Flyers have won 14 games in a row, pushing their record to 23-2 overall heading into Tuesday’s Atlantic 10 showdown against the VCU Rams. Dayton is in the discussion to be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and sophomore forward Obi Toppin is a candidate for National Player of the Year honors. The Flyers have not yet lost on the road this season, as both of their setbacks have come at neutral sites–and in overtime (to Kansas and Colorado). VCU is enduring its roughest stretch of the 2019-20 campaign right now, with a 1-3 record in its past four outings. Leading scorer Marcus Santos-Silva is averaging just 10.0 points per game over the past four contests. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Go with DAYTON.
Over Under Pick
Santos-Silva may not be on top of his game at the moment, but the Rams have plenty of weapons on the offensive end. Four different players have led the way in scoring over the last four games. Dayton is pouring in 81.2 points per game, good for ninth-most in the nation. Four different Flyers are scoring in double-figures, including Toppin with 19.7 ppg. Expect this one to go OVER the total.
