Why Bet on the VCU Rams?

VCU dominated the St. Joseph’s Hawks in the Rams’ most recent game, picking up much-needed momentum after back-to-back losses. We expect the visitors to outplay the Wildcats on the defensive end. The Rams average 58.2 opponent points (eighth) per game. They limit teams to 37.8% shooting (seventh) and have a top-three three-point shooting defense. Since the Wildcats are the second-best team from downtown, VCU can take advantage of its defense that restrains competitors to 26.3% from the three-point range.

The Rams don’t have much to offer on offense. Therefore, we expect this to be an offense versus defense game until the final buzzer. The visitors average 63.1 points (312th) on 43.5%shooting (180th).

What holds the team back from its full potential are two injuries. The list includes forwards Jimmy Nichols Jr. (undisclosed) and Marcus Tsohonis (undisclosed). Both players are questionable for Wednesday’s game, while Jarren McAllister and Jamir Watkins are both out of the season with knee injuries.

They have some of the league’s best sharpshooters and hit 41.6% of their shots (second) from downtown. The team also averages 54.3% from the two-point (48th) range.

On defense, the hosts allow 66.6 points (92nd) per game. They do have better rebounding numbers than their opponents. The team collected 33.0 total rebounds (266th) in 18 games played. The majority of boards come from defensive rebounds where they average 24.3 per game (117th).

The Rams have what it takes to cover the spread. Nonetheless, the team needs to overcome injuries and step up to edge Davidson on the road.
