VCU Rams

The Rams are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games when favored but are only 1-4 at the window in their last five games overall.

Saint Louis Billikens

The Billikens are 39-19 against the spread in their last 58 games when they’re the underdog and have covered in four of their last five games as a home dog.

College Basketball Prediction

With the way that SLU collapsed earlier this week in a second-half dud at UMass, I’m hesitate to take the home dog tonight. Plus, the road team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between the two teams, yet VCU is just 4-11 against the number in its last 15 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. Thus, I like the total more tonight. The over is 3-0-1 in the Rams’ last four games as a favorite, is 13-6 in their last 19 games when facing an opponent with a win percentage above .600 and is 5-2 in their last seven road games when facing a team with a winning home record. On the other side, the over has cashed in 13 of the SLU’s last 17 home games and is 17-7 in their last 24 games as a home dog.
