VA Commonwealth


VA Commonwealth -5 Point Spread

Under 136.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

An important game in the A-10 will see the VCU Rams host the Duquesne Dukes. VCU has a solid record overall, but a lackluster conference record has them on the outside looking in. At this point, the Rams are not even being considered, so an A-10 title may be their hope. Same goes with Duquesne, they have a better record than the Rams, yet are still not being considered. The Dukes are 10-6 in the conference and with two games remaining, they need wins to compete for that 4th seed. VCU managed to win against the Dukes on the road by a score of 80-74 earlier this season, and they should have some success at home. Although the Rams are not great ATS at home, and the same goes for the Dukes on the road. This is not a game I want to bet, but I would probably lean VCU because their defense is much better at home.

Over Under Pick

As I just mentioned, the VCU defense is miles better at home, so the under is where you have to look. In home games the Rams are allowing just 60.2 points per game. Duquesne also has a solid road defense, where they are allowing 68.8 points on average. Combined with the road/home splits for these teams, the under is 19-12, so the under would be my lean here.
