Matchup History

VCU’s 66-61 win over Fordham back on February 15th, 2022, made it five straight wins for VCU in this head-to-head matchup.


Fordham is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning home record while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 games following an ATS win. VCU is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win.


I’m backing VCU here. I like this Fordham team, I think they have a ton of depth and maybe it’s looking like Kyle Neptune made a bad call bolting for Villanova with so much talent left in the cupboards here. However, this Fordham team is a lot stronger at home and on the road against arguably the best team in the conference in VCU, who has one of the best defensive units going right now, it makes it tough to back them, even getting a decent number of points. I’ll take VCU by double-digits in this one.
