Dayton Flyers vs George Mason Patriots prediction

I considered the George Mason Patriots and the free bucket as they're at home where they're 12-2 SU. However, Dayton has been the more consistent team overall, they've proven they can win on the road, and you're not going to get them at lines this soft often for the rest of the way. George Mason will have a shot with a packed EagleBank Arena, but I'm still laying the bucket with Dayton.
