VCU is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games. The under is 11-5 in VCU’s last 16 road games. Dayton is 6-13 ATS in their last 19 Wednesday games. The over is 6-0 in Dayton’s last 6 Wednesday games. The favorite is 10-1 ATS in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

This should be a very good game between two good A-10 programs. VCU plays some of the best defense in the country, but also only scores 60 points per game. Dayton allows more points on defense, but scores over 70 points per game. I am going with Dayton in this game because they are the better rebounding team and are shooting the ball better.
