The Dayton Flyers and the UMass Minutemen meet in college basketball action from the Mullins Memorial Center on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Dayton is listed as an 8.5-point road favorite for this game with a total of 137.5 points.


For Dayton, R.J. Blakney is questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury, while UMass’ injury list features Dyondre Dominguez as questionable while Matt Cross and Brandon Martin remain out indefinitely.

Matchup History

Dayton’s 75-72 win back on March 11th, 2022, made it six straight wins for the Flyers in this head-to-head matchup.


Dayton is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. UMass is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATs win while the over is 14-3 in their last 17 games following a win by 20+ points.


I’m leaning towards the under. Dayton has been picking up wins a lot more frequently than UMASS, but they haven’t necessarily been doing it by lighting the scoreboard ablaze and I don’t think this game is going to be any different. I feel like this game just sets up for the first to 65 to win this game, so give me the under in this one.
