Rhode Island vs. St. Bonaventure Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Rhode Island vs. St. Bonaventure 2/16/18

Is No. 16 Rhode Island in danger of being upset tonight when it hits the road to face St. Bonaventure at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Rhode Island is the slight favorite on the road, as the Rams are getting odds of -2 points against St. Bonaventure. The over/under total for the game is listed at 150 points. Tonight’s game will take place from the Reilly Center in Saint Bonaventure, New York and air live on ESPN2.

Rhode Island is off to a perfect 13-0 start in Atlantic-10 play following an 85-67 win over Richmond at home this week. The Rams are 21-3 overall and 14-7-1 against the spread. URI is averaging 77.3 points per game this season while allowing 66.4 per contest. E.C. Matthews is questionable to play tonight due to a knee injury. He averages 12.9 points per game for the Rams. He has a knee bruise and is a game-time decision. Jared Terrell is the team leader with 17.5 points per game.

St. Bonaventure has won seven straight coming into tonight’s game, including a 79-68 win at La Salle earlier this week. The Bonnies are now 19-6 overall, 9-4 in the A-10 and 11-11 against the spread. St. Bonaventure is averaging 77.6 points per game on offense while allowing 69.6 per contest. Jaylen Adams is leading the team with 20.5 points and 5.3 assists per game while Matt Mobley is adding 18.5 points and 5 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Rhode Island vs. St. Bonaventure

Rhode Island has won three straight meetings in this series, including an 87-73 win at home on Jan. 13. The Mathews injury is concerning, but URI has been able to win without him in the past and still rolled past Richmond without him for most of the game. During its current 7-game win streak, the Bonnies are just 4-3 against the spread. Rhode Island has covered in three straight and three of its last four on the road. I think the Rams remain strong and win by more than two points tonight. The public betting is strong with Rhode Island tonight as well.
