The UMass Minutemen and the Fordham Rams meet in college basketball action from the Rose Hill Gym on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Fordham is listed as a 6.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -350. The total is set at 146.5 points.
For UMass, Rahsool Diggins is questionable for this game with an ankle injury while RJ Luis is out indefinitely with a concussion. Noah Fernandes is also out indefinitely.
UMass’ 81-73 win over Fordham made it 4 wins in the last 5 meetings between these two teams for the Minutemen.
UMass is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Fordham is 23-7-1 ATS in their last 31 home games and 14-4-1 ATS in their last 19 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games.
I get the case to be made for UMass as this Minutemen team has been solid in spots this season, but I’m sticking with Fordham as the Rams have played their best basketball at home this season and I just don’t see this as a spot to step in front of them. UMass hasn’t been great on the road in conference and I think Fordham takes advantage of that here. Give me the Rams laying the points.
