Dayton is 2-14 ATS in their last 16 games following a win and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall while the over is 10-4 in their last 14 home games.
I'm not trying to get behind either of these teams, as I just don't know what to expect from Coppin State, but Dayton has also been brutal ATS dating back to last season. All in all in a game like this, I'll have to go with the trends and hope that the Eagles can pull off a backdoor cover so I'll take the points and Coppin State here
