The St. Bonaventure Bonnies have played just two games and haven't had the toughest schedule up to this point, but they're an experienced club that returned a lot of production from a year ago and were a team I said that could make some noise in the A10 this year. The Rhode Island Rams have played some big boys this year, but they've had some scoring issues lately and it's enough to raise some eyebrows. You could argue St. Bonaventure is the better team here. Give me the free bucket.
