The Dayton Flyers still haven’t lost a game since December 21. The Dayton Flyers are averaging 80.1 points on 52.4 percent shooting and allowing 65 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Obi Toppin is averaging 19.7 points and 7.8 rebounds while Jalen Crutcher is averaging 14.8 points and 5.1 assists.

The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The George Washington Colonials aren't a good basketball team and that carries over on the road where they lose by an average of 8.7 points and shoot just 40.9 percent from the field. The Dayton Flyers haven't lost in months, and they win at home by an average of 19.2 points, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 12.8 points. However, Dayton is just 7-7 against the spread as a double-digit underdog and this is a massive line. There's better options on a loaded Saturday, but I want the points if forced to pick this game.
