Matchup History

Fordham’s 66-64 win back on January 14th, 2023, made it four straight head-to-head wins for the Rams in this matchup.


La Salle is 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 Thursday games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS win while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Fordham is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall.


I’m backing the Rams here. La Salle’s done a good job so far in the conference tournament at snagging wins and looked really good against Duquesne, but Fordham stifled the Explorers in both meetings this season and I just don’t see anything to suggest that that changes here. Fordham’s the better team by a fair margin and I think they show that here on their way to a win and cover to move on to the next round.
