The Dukes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games, 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The over is 5-0 in Dukes last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Monarchs last 5 overall.

The Old Dominion Monarchs have been the better team up to this point and will have the best player on the court. However, the James Madison Dukes are battle tested on the road and usually show up when playing away from home, which explains a strong ATS record on the road dating back to last season. ODU probably gets the victory, but James Madison and a great deal of points seems like the play in this spot.

Pick:
James Madison Dukes +7
