The Dayton Flyers are the better side, and they smoked Fordham in the only meeting on the road, but this line is a bit rude to the Rams. The Fordham Rams are not only playing great ball right now, but they’ve been a tough out all year, losing as underdogs by an average of 1.8 points. Fordham is 6-3 ATS when underdogs of 7 or fewer points. Give me the underdog.
