These are two bad basketball teams, but the Fordham Rams are in far worse shape, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 12.4 points while shooting 36.2 percent from the field and losing on the road by an average of 16.7 points. The La Salle Explorers already won the first meeting on the road by six points, and they're a profitable 7-5 ATS at home and 15-9 ATS on the season. I'll eat the chalk with La Salle, but I don't make a habit of laying big numbers with losing teams.
