The Rhode Island Rams (19-6, CONF 11-2) and Davidson Wildcats (13-12, CONF 7-6) face off in an Atlantic 10 showdown at Belk Arena. The Rams knocked off the Wildcats in early January 69-58.
The Rams aren’t getting a ton of attention, but they are having a lot of success coming into this game having won nine of the last ten games. The only loss for Rhode Island during that stretch was against the Dayton Flyers.
Over the last five games the Rams are averaging 76.4 points while the defense is giving up 65.8 points. The Rams are led by Fatts Russell who is averaging 20.2 points and shooting over 41 percent from the field.
The expectations were high for the WIldcats, but with a loss in this game they will drop back to .500 on the season. In Davidson’s last game they had one of their worst losses of the season. Davidson was 12 point favorites against St. Joe’s but the defense collapsed in the second half and that led to a one point loss.
The Wildcats are led by guard Kellan Grady who is averaging 16.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.4 assists.
The Rams are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games against the Atlantic 10. Rhode Island is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
The under is 10-4 in the Rams last 14 games against the Atlantic 10. The under is 6-2-1 in the Wildcats last nine home games.
The Wildcats are going to struggle again, except this time the loss isn’t going to be just ten points. Look for the Rams defense to have success, and they should be able to win this game by at least ten points.
