The UMass Minutemen (11-15, 5-8 CONF) and the Fordham Rams (7-18, 1-12 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 22nd for an A10 conference matchup at the Rose Hill Gymnasium in Bronx, NY. The game will be played at 4:00 PM eastern time. 

UMass is coming off a 67-63 home win over Saint Louis in their last game. UMass has won two of their last three games overall, but still stand three games under .500 with both their conference and overall records. Fordham is coming off a 58-49 road loss to La Salle in their last game. Fordham has only won one conference game this season, and they have lost seven games in a row up to date. 

UMass scores 69.2 points per game on 43% FG shooting this season. The Minutemen’s leading scorer is C Tre Mitchell, who scores 16.8 PPG, and their leading rebounder is F Samba Diallo, who averages 6.2 RPG. UMass allows 72.4 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -3.2 scoring differential so far this season. UMass also earns 32.0 rebounds, 13.2 assists, 3.1 blocks, and 7.0 steals per game as a team.

Fordham scores 57.1 points per game on 37.8% FG shooting this season. The Rams leading scorer is G Jalen Cobb, who scores 11.1 PPG. The Rams leading rebounder is F Onyi Eyisi, who averages 5.6 RPG. Fordham allows 61.5 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a -4.4 point differential so far this season. Fordham also earns 32.5 rebounds, 11.2 assists, 2.6 blocks, and 7.2 steals per game as a team. 

UMass is 15-10-1 ATS this season and 5-4-1 ATS in their last ten games. UMass is also 3-6 ATS on the road so far this season. Fordham is 10-15 ATS this season and 5-5 ATS in their last ten games. Fordham is also 5-10 ATS at home so far this season.

I like UMass in this game due to the fact that I think their bigs, Tre Mitchell and Samba Diallo will have their way with Fordham on the boards and in the paint. I will lay the 1.5 points with the UMass Minutemen.
