Duquesne vs. VCU Prediction

I’m on the under here. I think this is going to be a defensive battle between two of the better teams in the conference at defending the perimeter. That’s going to be huge for Duquesne as they need all the help they can get with how bad their offense is and how well VCU shoots from behind the arc. I think this one could be the first to 65 wins so give me the under.
