VCU faces La Salle on Saturday, January 8th, 2022 at Tom Gola Arena for a college basketball A10 matchup. 

VCU is coming off a 53-52 win over Dayton in its last game on the road on January 5th. VCU has now won five straight games and has improved to 8-4 overall this season with a 1-0 A10 record. VCU is also 8-4 against the spread so far this season. VCU may not score a ton of points per game, but this Rams team has one of the better defenses in the nation. VCU as a team has scored 59.9 points per game and has shot the ball at a 42.3% clip from the field. VCU has also allowed 56.3 points per game to its opponents as well. VCU's leading scorer so far this season has been F Vince Williams Jr. who has scored 10.9 points per game, has earned 6.1 rebounds per game, and has earned 2.7 assists per game as well. 

La Salle is coming off a 69-61 loss to Fordham in its last game at home on December 30th. La Salle has now lost two straight games, which includes a bad non-conference loss to Bucknell by double-digits on the road. La Salle is 5-6 this season with an 0-1 A10 record and a measly 3-7-1 against the spread record as well. La Salle's leading scorer so far this season has been G Josh Nickelberry, who has scored 11.9 points per game for the Explorers. G Christian Ray leads the team in rebounds per game at 7.6 and G Anwar Gill leads the team in assists per game at 3.7. La Salle as a team has scored 69.6 points per game and has shot the ball at a 41.3% clip from the field. La Salle has also allowed 71.2 points per game to its opponents.

VCU is an 8.5-point favorite and the total is set at 126. I think VCU wins this game comfortably but laying 8.5 points on the road as a defensive-minded team is never easy. VCU scores less than 60 points per game as it is, and even though La Salle seems to be one of the weakest teams in the A10 this season, I think the Explorers keep this one respectable.
