The Fordham Rams and the Davidson Wildcats meet in A-10 college basketball action from the Belk Arena on Saturday afternoon.

The Fordham Rams will look to snap a 3-game losing streak after a 66-52 loss to St. Joseph’s in their last outing. Ty Perry led the Rams with 12 points on 4 of 9 shooting from 3-point range while Nick Honor added 10 points as the only other Ram to score in double figures in the losing effort. Jalen Cobb had 6 points with team-highs of 4 assists and 3 steals while Chuba Ohams had 9 points with 6 rebounds and Jesse Bunting added 8 points and a team-high 7 boards. Honor leads Fordham in scoring with 16 points per game while Ohams leads the Rams in rebounding with 5.9 rebounds per game and Antwon Portley leads Fordham in assists with 3.1 assists per game this season. As a team, Fordham is averaging 67.8 points per game on 41.4% shooting from the field, 34.2% from 3-point range and 67.8% from the foul line this season.

The Davidson Wildcats will be looking to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their last 4 games after a 79-69 loss to La Salle in their last outing. Kellan Grady led the Wildcats with 21 points on 8 of 16 shooting with a pair of threes while Jon Axel Gudmundsson had 19 points with team-highs of 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Luka Brajkovic added 12 points with a pair of blocks while shooting 6 of 7 from the floor to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Davidson in the losing effort. Gudmundsson leads the Wildcats with averages of 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game this season. As a team, Davidson is averaging 71.4 points per game on 45.2% shooting from the field, 35.5% from behind the arc and 74.4% from the foul line this season.

Fordham is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 18-37-1 ATS in their last 56 games overall while the over is 12-5 in their last 17 conference games. Davidson is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Fordham is 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

In the 7 meetings since Davidson joined the A-10 in 2014-15, the Wildcats have won 5 of the 7 games against Fordham by an average of 20.2 points per game in the victories. Fordham has been decent ATS on the road as of late, but the fact remains that the Rams are still one of the worst teams in the A-10 this season, and Davidson has to build some momentum with the A-10 tournament just around the corner. I see this game ending as a convincing Davidson victory, and as such, I’m laying the points with the Wildcats in this one.

Pick:
Davidson -13
