The Dayton Flyers takes on the La Salle Thursday and Larry Cook suggests putting 3 units on Dayton to cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting line at Dayton -1, but the line has since risen to Dayton –1.5.

Cook writes: Dayton is one of those teams that is clearly on the bubble right now in terms of the NCAA Tournament. With their 17-7 record, they will not allow themselves to fall to an 11-13 La Salle club tonight. Dayton has won 13 of their last 17 meetings with La Salle so history is clearly on their side. La Salle is just 1-4 ATS in all home games this season. La Salle is 0-6 ATS at home when the line is +3 to -3 over the last 2 seasons. La Salle is 11-25 ATS in home games when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 60% to 80%) since 1997. Bet an inspired Dayton team on the road.

Public betting information shows that of the 5,124 wagers currently placed on tonight’s game, 71% of bettors like the Dayton to cover the 1.5-point spread against La Salle. Accuscore has La Salle as a 54% favorite.

Some trends to consider for tonight’s game:

- LASALLE is 9-2 ATS (+6.8 Units) as an underdog this season.

- LASALLE is 21-37 ATS (-19.7 Units) in home games when playing against a team with a winning record since 1997.

- LASALLE is 1-1 against the spread versus DAYTON over the last 3 seasons

- LASALLE is 1-1 straight up against DAYTON over the last 3 seasons

- Dayton: 0-6 ATS Away when the line is +3 to –3

- La Salle: 9-2 ATS as an underdog

- 2 of 2 games in this series have gone OVER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons
