Fordham vs Dayton Betting Prediction

Dayton comes into this matchup tied for first in the A-10 standings and they are ranked #16 in the country. The Flyers are solid offensively, but they play great defense, allowing just 64 points against per game this season. Fordham is only 4-7 in conference play and they have allowed 85, 75, and 83 points in their last three losses. The Rams have two main issues: They struggle on defense and only shoot 41.1% from the field. Dayton has shown they can be beaten on the road, but I don’t think Fordham can hang with them at home. Take the Flyers here.
