I’m leaning towards Saint Louis here, but probably not a game I’m rushing to bet. This is just a great matchup, but this Saint Louis team is one I’ve had my eye on in recent weeks and one I circled coming into the season, it just took them a while to really live up to those expectations and we’ve seen it over the last couple of weeks. Fordham’s good, but they’ve stumbled in their biggest step up spot at home against Dayton and I think the Billikens will provide a similar test. Give me the Billikens laying the points here.
