Boston is in bad form right now and can't be thrilled having to go on the road to play in the CBI. Meanwhile, Fordham has been playing solid ball down the stretch and would like to use this tournament to build on a successful season next season. The Rams are pretty solid defensively and should be able to use their pace to their advantage.
I like the home team by double digits.
