The Saint Louis Billikens and Rhode Island Rams face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Ryan Center. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Saint Louis that won 67-60. 

Saint Louis comes into this game with a 19-10 record overall and they have gone 16-11-1 against the spread. In the last game against Richmond, Saint Louis only had 23 points in the second half and that led to the two point defeat. Saint Louis is averaging 77.7 points while their defense is giving up 67.8 points per game. Gibson Jimerson has been the top player for Saint Louis this season averaging 15.9 points while shooting 44.1 percent from the field and 40.1 percent from behind the three point line.

On the other side of this matchup is the Rhode Island Rams who sit with a 14-13 record and they have gone 14-14 against the spread. In the last game against Duquesne the defense was strong giving up only 54 points, and that led to the 16 point victory. Rhode Island is averaging 67 points while their defense is giving up 63.9 points per game. The top player this season for Rhode Island is Makhel Mitchell who is averaging 10.9 points while shooting 53.6 percent from the field. Jeremy Sheppard has also been good averaging 10.1 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field. In this game, Rhode Island is going to need the defense to be good.

Saint Louis is 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 road games against a team with a winning home record. The under is 8-0 in Rhode Island’s last eight games played on Wednesday. The over is 4-0 in Saint Louis last four games played on Wednesday. 

I like the way Rhode Island has played at home, and this is a point where Saint Louis is going to play down to the competition. Saint Louis has struggled to cover spreads on the road against good teams and that is going to be the case again in this game. Back Rhode Island to cover the spread.
