Fordham vs VCU Betting Prediction

VCU comes into this game on a three game losing streak, but they did play Dayton and Richmond very tough in two of those three losses. VCU is a very good defensive team, but they are only shooting 44.4% from the field. Fordham is coming off of an overtime win on Tuesday, but they also lost their last three regular season games. Fordham is only shooting 40% from the field and they have scored 69 points or fewer in four straight games. VCU won the only regular season meeting between these teams by a score of 75-60 and I expect another double-digit win here. Take VCU.
