Dayton is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games, 1-4 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 5-1 against the spread following a win. St. Louis is 10-25 against the spread against the A-10, 7-19 against the spread in their last 26 road games, and 5-16 against the spread in their last 21 games following a game that they covered the point spread. The underdog has covered the point spread in 21 of the last 26 meetings of these two.
This is a monster number and while I see Dayton winning big this number is a little too big.
