Rhode Island vs. La Salle Pick

NCAA Predictions: Can Rhode Island cover at La Salle? 2/20/18

Can No. 18 Rhode Island bounce back from its first A-10 loss tonight when the Rams go on the road to face La Salle at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Rhode Island is favored on the road in this game, as the Rams are getting odds of -7.5 points against La Salle. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 145 points. Tonight’s game will take place from Tom Gola Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will air live on the CBS Sports Network.

Rhode Island is coming off a 77-74 loss at St. Bonaventure to snap its long win streak. The Rams are 21-4 overall, 13-1 in the A-10 and 14-8-1 against the spread. URI is averaging 77.2 points per game on offense while allowing 66.8 per game on defense. Jared Terrell is averaging 17.7 points per game to lead the team while E.C. Matthews is averaging 12.9 per game despite battling an injury.

La Salle ended a three-game losing streak in a 69-62 win over George Mason. La Salle is now 11-16 overall, 5-9 in the A-10 and 7-19 against the spread. The Explorers are averaging 72.6 points per game on offense this season while allowing 74.3 per game on defense. B.J. Johnson has been leading the team with 20.5 points and 8 rebounds per game while Pookie Powell is adding 16.8 points and 4.2 assists per game.

Bet on Rhode Island vs. La Salle

Rhode Island has won six of its last seven meetings with La Salle, covering in six of the last eight meetings as well. These two met on Jan. 3 with Rhode Island getting a 74-62 win as an 11-point favorite. Despite coming off a win, La Salle failed to cover and is 1-9 ATS in its last 10. They are 5-7 ATS at home and just 7-19 ATS overall. With this spread being inside 10 points, I like the Rams. Coming off a loss should give them a little spark and get them re-focused to finish strong in the conference. The public betting is strong with Rhode Island as well.
