Bet on Duquesne vs. Rhode Island

The road team has won eight of the last 10 meetings in this series and Duquesne has covered in three of the last four encounters with Rhode Island. Despite that, the Rams have been dominant in A-10 play. They are 7-1 against the spread with the lone failed cover missing by just ½ a point. Rhode Island is at home and should continue to dominate. The Rams have won all their home conference games by double figures. The public betting is taking Duquesne and the points, but I will stick with Rhode Island.
