The Saint Louis Billikens welcome the Fordham Rams to the Chaifetz Arena on Saturday.
Fordham tends to allow points so their best chance of winning is to outscore the opposition. That hasn't happened over the past few weeks with five consecutive defeats with neither end of the floor coming through in an 80-68 loss to visiting Dayton. The Flyers hit at a lights out 57% and the Rams couldn't maintain the pace at 34.5% from the field. Fordham received 20 points and six yanks from Branden Frazier while Ryan Rhoomes connected for 15 points and hauled in 15 rebounds with Jon Severe tossing in 13 points.

Saint Louis might not win the Atlantic Ten but they certainly look like one of the elite in a very competitive conference. The Billikens are known for their defensive prowess and needed every stop they could muster in turning back a stubborn St Bonaventure 66-60. SLU made things hard on themselves as they struggled to a 16-30 mark from the line which was still enough to secure the win with the Bonnies sinking ten free throws. Dwayne Evans paced the offense with 18 points and six pulls with Jordair Jett netting 15 points and another six boards while six players netted between 4-6 points.
I don't really have an edge except Saint Louis is really good and Fordham isn't. A lot of points but the Billikens cover if they want to so do with this what you will...
