The Davidson Wildcats and the VCU Rams meet in college basketball action from the Barclays Center as part of the Atlantic 10 basketball tournament. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
VCU is listed as a 6.5-point favorite with the total for this game set at 134.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
VCU’s 61-59 win over Davidson back on January 31st, 2023, made it three straight wins in this head-to-head matchup.
Davidson is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. VCU is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 neutral site games.
I’m backing VCU here. Davidson lost both meetings and was able to keep the rematch close at home, but the problem is that this isn’t the same Davidson team of years past that was a live underdog anytime they were in a conference tournament or postseason tournament. VCU is the top team in the A-10 by no fluke and I think this is a spot where VCU simply shuts down Davidson and rides their defense and balanced attack to a double-digit win and cover here.
