Duquesne vs Fordham Prediction

Duquesne picked up a strong win over Saint Louis last time out, and I think they can go into the Bronx and leave with a victory over Fordham this Friday. The Dukes played the Rams very well at home last month, and if they’re matchup tomorrow replicates it, there are a pair of angles to look at here. Duquesne’s simply playing better than Fordham right now, and with their postseason hopes still very much alive, leaning on them to win here is a solid route to take. I believe both rugged squads will face off in another slugfest, and that should reflect on the scoreboard, so let’s back the Under for this Atlantic 10 battle.
