Shane’s Free Pick

Saint Joseph’s is going to have tired legs playing their third game in as many nights. The last time Dayton faced off against the Hawks, St Joe’s only managed 56 points and their offense is going to be an issue again in this game. Look for Dayton to finish with at least 75 points here, and that will be enough to cover the spread. Back Dayton against the spread.
