The Colonials are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bulldogs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
Georgia is a team that's starting to find its groove and should be a team to watch once it enters SEC play. However, Robert Morris is no pushover and six of the Colonials 10 losses have been decided by 10 or less points. I have to take the points here with a Robert Morris team that competes hard and has a guy in Pryor who can takeover a game.
