Dayton Best Bet on Road vs VCU

No.18 Dayton (19-3, 9-1) has been the leader in most NCAAB predictions to win the Atlantic 10 Conference and has continued to back that up with its play. VCU (15-8, 7-3) is not at the level of Dayton within the conference but is still a good team and will play this matchup at home, giving it a chance.

In the Flyers’ last game, they dominated Saint Joseph’s 94-79 on the road in a raucous stadium, which led to a sloppy first half. The Rams also picked up a road win, beating Fordham 75-60.

Dayton vs VCU ATS Pick: Dayton -1

Right now, Dayton is the top team in the Atlantic 10. The Flyers have the best overall record and the most wins in conference play. On top of that, they are the only ranked team in the conference, which is well deserved.

Dayton’s last win over Saint Joseph’s only validates the team’s college basketball predictions. It started rough with the Flyers down 38-34 at halftime, and conference leading scorer DaRonHolmes II only finished with 13 points in the game.

However, Dayton won the second half 60-41 and got massive contributions from Nate Santos and Kobe Elvis. They each had 21 points, combining for five 3-pointers to get the dominating win.

On the other hand, college basketball odds could lean toward VCU because it recently had an important win. Before beating Fordham, the Rams beat Richmond, the team in second place in the A-10 and the only one to beat Dayton this season in conference play.


Dayton vs VCU Over/Under Pick: Over 135

In this game, the college basketball line on the point total could be pretty low, given how good both team’s defenses are. Against conference opponents, Dayton allows the second-fewest points (64.2) while VCU is third (65.2).

However, after what the Flyers did in their last game, the offense seems humming and ready for this matchup. Furthermore, the offense succeeded without its top scorer having a big game, which will likely change against VCU.

The biggest challenge to this game hitting the over would be VCU’s offense and how often it struggles. On top of that, being at home, the Rams might step it up on defense, which is how they beat Richmond.


Dayton vs VCU Player Prop Pick: DaRon Holmes II Over 20.5 points (-108)

Holmes has been one of the consistent scorers in the Atlantic 10 this season. He leads the conference in points per game while averaging 22.2 in his 10 games against teams from Atlantic 10. The loss to Richmond was his lowest-scoring game in conference play, and the 13 points against Saint Joseph’s is second. Expect him to bounce back.
