Fordham vs. West Virginia Pick
Can No. 10 West Virginia roll to a big win over Fordham when the two meet up this afternoon at Noon ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, West Virginia the clear favorite in this game, as the Mountaineers are getting odds of -25.5 points against Fordham. The over/under total for the game has yet to be set. Today’s game takes place from WVU Coliseum in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Fordham is coming off a 79-69 win over Florida A&M on Thursday to improve to 5-6 on the season. The Rams are just 1-6 against the spread this season, failing to cover in their last three lined games. Fordham is averaging only 64.5 points per game on offense while allowing just 65.2 per contest. Will Tavares is averaging 16.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game this season while Prokop Slanina is adding 12.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per contest.
West Virginia is on a 10-game winning streak since losing its season opener. The Mountaineers are 10-1 on the year, but just 3-4 against the spread. WVU is averaging 84.6 points per game on offense while allowing just 62.9 per game. Jevon Carter is putting up 18.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game to lead the team while Daxter Miles Jr. is adding 14.3 points per contest.
These two have no recent meetings to consider for today’s contest. Both teams are pretty poor in their trends as Fordham has failed to cover in four straight road games and 8 of their last 28 non-conference contests. West Virginia clearly has more talent and I think their offensive capability will be too much for Fordham to handle. The public betting is strongly with West Virginia today and I agree with them.
CBB DAILY PREDICTION: WEST VIRGINIA -25.5
