Dayton Flyers betting analysis

Dayton dealt with Fordham on Saturday, turning a three-point half-time lead into a ten-point triumph. Fordham led all NCAA Division I baskets in most wins after falling behind at halftime this season, so it was far from certain that the Flyers would advance. Toumani Camara had 28 points and Daron Holmes had 20. With just over six minutes left, Dayton went on a 13-4 run to ensure they were the ones going through.

The Flyers have been searching for their first A-10 title since 2003. Since then they have lost three finals (2004, 2011, 2015). They have lost five of their last seven against VCU but have won two of their last three. This year they lost 63-62 on January 13 but retaliated 62-58 on February 7.

VCU Rams Betting Analysis

The top seeded VCU Rams were stellar on Saturday, taking the lead against the Billikens by just over 15 minutes and never looking back. Jayden Nunn led the team with 18 points as he was one of five Rams to score double digits. In their eight-game winning streak, all but two of their games have been double-digit wins. The loss that preceded their run was against Dayton last month.

Despite losing the A-10 championship in 2015, the VCU have been bitten by snakes in a number of finals appearances over the past decade. They lost the last game five times, in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2021.

Dayton vs VCU Barbara Prediction

VCU are the hotter squad and they’ve won five of their last seven encounters against their peers. Dayton has two losses with four and five points and three wins in their last five.

Five of Dayton’s last six duels resulted in more than 125.5 total points. Six of the last seven times the Rams have played on the field have also had totals in their games above the listed 125.5. That seems to indicate overhitting – however, both tilts have accumulated less than 125.5 points this year, and that has been the case three of the last four times these two teams have met.

Tip: VCU Rams Moneyline (-130), Under 125.5 points (-110)
