The under is 4-0 in Flyers last 4 road games. The over is 5-2 in Rams last 7 overall. The road team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Dayton Flyers have been in nothing but close games this season due to an offense that shoots the ball well but doesn't score a lot. The problem is the Fordham Rams have done nothing impressive through two games and have been horrible against the number dating back to last season. Dayton should roll in this contest, and I'll lay the chalk, even if there's likely better options on the Tuesday CBB betting card.
