Duquesne Dukes vs Fordham Rams prediction

The Duquesne Dukes have comfortably been the better team this season, and they just beat Fordham a few weeks ago by 9 points. The Fordham Rams don’t shoot the ball well enough and their defense is well below average. Fordham is also just 4-10 SU at home, so home court doesn’t matter much here. Duquesne has covered 7 of its last 10 games. The line is reasonable. I’ll lay the bucket with the Duquesne Dukes.
