VCU is 5-13 against the spread following a loss, 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, and 5-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. La Salle is 6-18-2 against the spread against the A-10, 1-3-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 1-4-2 against the spread in their last seven games. The road team has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
This is a pretty good number and VCU hasn’t been at their best but I will lay the points and tread lightly here.
