George Mason vs Fordham Prediction

George Mason picked up an impressive comeback win over Dayton last weekend, and I believe they’ll bring that momentum to the Bronx against Fordham. The Rams are struggling to find consistency on the offensive end, and with the Patriots shining on the defensive side of the ball, they may find success here on the road. While I do like rolling with GMU to win this game, the magic number sits in an appealing spot, and with the hosts preferring an up-tempo style of play, it gives us another route to take. Back the Over for this Atlantic 10 battle.
