The George Washington Colonials and Fordham Rams meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Rose Hill Gymnasium.

The George Washington Colonials need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The George Washington Colonials are averaging 63.8 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 44.5 percent shooting. DJ Williams is averaging 14.5 points and 4.7 rebounds while Maceo Jack  is averaging 11.4 points and 3.9 rebounds. Terry Nolan Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Maceo Jack is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The George Washington Colonials are shooting 31.7 percent from beyond the arc and 68.6 percent from the free throw line. The George Washington Colonials are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.6 rebounds per game. The George Washington Colonials have lost their last six road games.

The Fordham Rams need a win after losing 15 of their last 17 games. The Fordham Rams are averaging 65.3 points on 40.1 percent shooting and allowing 68 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Nick Honor is averaging 15.8 points and 2.2 rebounds while Antwon Portley is averaging 11.3 points and 2.9 assists. Jalen Cobb is dishing 2.2 assists and Jesse Bunting is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Fordham Rams are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 69.2 percent from the free throw line. The Fordham Rams are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.9 rebounds per game. The Fordham Rams have lost their last nine home games.

The Colonials are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Atlantic 10, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Rams are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Atlantic 10, 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games and 18-38-1 ATS in their last 57 games overall. The favorite is 11-5-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings and the home team is 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Rams last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Colonials last 7 overall.

The Fordham Rams are just 3-7 ATS as a favorite this season and have lost each of the last nine games against George Washington. With that said, the George Washington Colonials have lost six straight on the road and are losing on the road this season overall by an average of 13.8 points while allowing 46 percent shooting. Both teams enter this contest losing their last five games by an average double digits and can't score. The one edge we have is that Fordham is at home and this will be the last home contest for six seniors. I expect the Rams to put together one of their best efforts, adding the Colonials issues on the road.

Pick:
Fordham -5
