As a team, Fordham is averaging 59.6 points per game on 38.7% shooting from the field, 32.5% from behind the 3-point line and 62.2% from the foul line this season.

The Saint Louis Billikens will look to rebound after back-to-back losses after a 71-59 loss to Davidson in their last outing. Javonte Perkins led the Billikens with 25 points on 7 of 17 shooting with 5 threes while Tay Weaver added 15 points on 5 threes as the only other double-digit scorer for Saint Louis in the losing effort.

Fordham is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 14-5 in their last 19 games following a win. Saint Louis is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 games following a loss. The home team is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.

I’m not trying to side with Fordham on most nights and Saint Louis is the much better team here but the Billikens are coming off of back-to-back losses and are one of the worst teams from the free throw line this season and the Billikens leave a lot of points there, points that could be key when it comes to covering a big number like this one. The Billikens have a tendency to play down to lesser opposition, so I’ll take my chances with Fordham and the points in this one.
