Kyle Rose has 10 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Fordham so far this year while Antrell Charlton has 7.9 PPG with 4.2 RPG and 4.6 APG to lead the Rams in the assist department this season.

Binghamton is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. Fordham is 4-17 ATS in their last 21 Friday games and 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 7-0 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
I get the reasoning for backing either one of these two here, but I’m going to look at Fordham. The Rams had the cupboards left stocked when Kyle Neptune bolted for Villanova, but that has just seemingly put fuel on the fire for Fordham who have taken no prisoners early on this season. Binghamton’s battled hard in spots, but they haven’t really beaten anyone to suggest that they’d be a formidable opponent here. Give me the Fordham Rams in this one.
