George Mason’s 50-49 win back on January 22nd, 2022, snapped Dayton’s three-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.


George Mason is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Dayton is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 home games.


I’m backing Dayton here. This does feel like a big number and it is, but Dayton’s been up to the task in a lot of their recent games. George Mason’s solid, but I just feel like Dayton is the better team in better form and they’re also trying to hunt down VCU for the conference regular season title. George Mason’s also had a lot of issues on the road as of late, so I’ll lay it and play it with Dayton here.
