Fordham Preview: Can the Rams Capitalize at the Barclays?

Davidson vs Fordham Prediction

Davidson and Fordham have both taken steps back this season, so it’s fitting that they’re opening the A-10 tournament, and their struggles may pour into this contest. The Wildcats have lost their last five games, and they’ve squandered on the offensive end. The Rams dropped their final three games, while also struggling to surpass the 70-point mark themselves, so we may be in for a low-scoring matchup. It’s hard to beat a team three times in a season, so spotting Fordham the points in nearby Brooklyn isn’t a bad route, but let’s back the Under for this first round matchup.
