The Dayton Flyers host the VCU Rams in an Atlantic Ten college basketball matchup.

The  VCU Rams  continued  to stay  hot  in an  81-60  rout of Richmond on Wednesday as a ten point road favorite.

VCU has been at the top of their game with five consecutive victories which has the team second in the Atlantic Ten.

The balanced Rams offense saw 16 points from Isaac Vann followed by a 13 point performance from Mike’l Simms.

VCU received another 16 points and five helpers from Marcus Evans with Marcus Santos-Silva and De’Riante Jenkins tossing in eight points each.

The Dayton Flyers are eyeing consecutive wins after dominating Rhode Island 77-48 as a two point road favorite a week ago.

Dayton sits atop the Atlantic Ten with wins in four of five as they try to fend off a challenge from hard charging VCU.

Jalen Crutcher topped the Flyers easy win with 20 points, four pulls and four assists with 19 points and four boards from Obi Toppin.

Josh Cunningham gave Dayton 13 points and four boards followed by Jordan Davis with another 12 points and five rebounds.

VCU Rams are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall and VCU Rams are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic 10.

Dayton Flyers are 12-25-1 ATS in their last 38 games overall and Dayton Flyers are 7-17-1 ATS in their last 25 vs. Atlantic 10.

Over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings and favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Both teams are playing well but I think the Rams are playing a tad better…

Pick:
VCU +2.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
