Rhode Island Rams vs UMass Minutemen prediction
The UMass Minutemen are the more talented team, they've been sharper over the last couple of weeks, and they have the edge defensively. UMass is also at home, where it's 10-2 SU this season. Still, this line is a bit strange when you consider Rhode Island has been in a ton of close games this season and beat UMass last month by 12 points as 3 point underdogs. The Rhode Island Rams are still a capable offense and can give teams a scare here and there. Give me the boatload of free points.
