Davidson Wildcats -7 -- Over/Under: 128.5
The Davidson Wildcats and the Fordham Rams meet in A-10 college basketball action from the Rose Hill Gymnasium on Tuesday night.
The Davidson Wildcats come into this game looking to rebound after a 54-51 loss to UMass in their last outing. Jon Axel Gudmundsson led the Wildcats with 17 points on 6 of 12 shooting with a team-high 6 rebounds as the lone scorer in double figures for Davidson in the losing effort. Kellan Grady added 4 points with a team-high 5 assists while Luke Frampton added 7 points and 4 assists. Gudmundsson leads Davidson with an average of 16.5 points, 7 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game this season. As a team, Davidson is averaging 70.6 points per game on 44.5% shooting from the field, 34.6% from behind the 3-point line and 73.9% from the foul line this season.
The Fordham Rams could definitely use a win after losing 10 of their last 11 games following a 74-66 loss to Duquesne in their last outing. Nick Honor led the Rams with 18 points and a team-high 5 assists while Ty Perry added 11 points with a pair of threes and Ivan Raut added 10 points with 3 threes and 4 steals to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Fordham in the loss. Jesse Bunting and Chuba Ohams each had a team-high 10 rebounds as well in the defeat. Honor leads the Rams in scoring with 15.9 points per game while Ohams leads Fordham in rebounding with 5.3 rebounds per game and Antwon Portley leads Fordham in assists with 3.1 helpers per game this season. As a team, Fordham is averaging 68.3 points per game on 42.1% shooting from the field, 34.5% from behind the arc and 68% from the foul line this season.
Davidson is 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. Fordham is 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 conference games.
The points are somewhat tempting considering that Fordham has been involved in quite a few close games during conference play, and are outscoring teams by 1.5 points per game at home this season. However, the Rams’ lone win came over UMass, and the Minutemen are the first team above the Rams in the basement of the A-10 this season. Davidson is proving to be the team to beat in the conference this season and I just don’t think the Rams will have enough to compete here as their other two games against the top-3 in the A-10 in VCU and Dayton were decided by a combined 48 points. I’ll lay the reasonable line with Davidson on the road here.
