The VCU Rams and the Dayton Flyers meet in college basketball action from the Barclays Center in the Atlantic 10 conference tournament championship game on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
VCU is listed as a 2.5-point favorite with the total for this game set at 125.5 points.
For Dayton, Kobe Elvis is out indefinitely with a knee injury while VCU comes into this game with a clean injury report.
Dayton’s 62-58 win over VCU back on February 7th, 2023, made it four straight meetings without back-to-back winners in this head-to-head matchup.
Dayton is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall. VCU is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 9-4 in their last 13 games overall.
I’m leaning towards the under here. This game could honestly go either way and I think the line clearly reflects that but the constant between these two teams has been low-scoring and tight games and with the conference championship hanging in the balance in the rubber match, I have to go with the under in another low-scoring, close affair.
