Against The Spread Pick
A lopsided Atlantic-10 match-up will see the Rhode Island Rams take on the Fordham Rams. Rhode Island is one of two teams projected to make the tournament from this conference and ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has them as an 8 seed. Meanwhile Fordham is having a disastrous season, losing nine of their last ten an eight in a row. During the eight-game losing streak, they have only covered three times. At home in general, Forham is 5-11 ATS, so even at a double-digit number, I lean to Rhode Island to get the job done. Bet this one light because it is still a lot of points and we have seen crazier upsets this time of year.
Over Under Pick
Knowing that Fordham is involved in this game has me looking at the under right away. Fordham is averaging 56.8 points per game, 58.9 points in home games, and just 50.8 points over their last five games. That is some of the worst offensive stats in the entire country. Rhode Island however, are averaging around 74 points per game, so they should have plenty of success. The under is 17-4-1 in Fordham’s last 22 games against the Atlantic 10 and 3-12-1 in home games this year. That being said, I look for the under to cash pretty easily.
