both teams are coming off 2 loss weeks. Most people are taking VCU but these seem to be the games that URI play well in.

Having said that, i still think VCU wins

VCU is giving 11.5 in this game. I know URI isn't that good, but this seems high.

I agree, especially if VCU's shooting woes continue. Suprisingly VCU is shooting better in conference play on the road!

It's hard to get a read on VCU because of their style, if Rhody controls the ball it will be under that line. if they turn it over VCU could easily cover. It's a crapshoot.

the way URI has been Jekyll and Hyde lately, I'm staying away from this line

If the Rams can counter the Rams' aggressiveness on defense, then I think the Rams can pull this one out. But if the Rams get physical on the offensive boards – and demonstrate that they really want it more than the Rams do, I would change my prediction to the Rams.

Agreed. I think it's a 50/50 chance that the Rams win, or lose, this game.

Rhody may have lost but did cover the spread. Big student turnout helped make it the biggest crowd of the year with 6,632. Fairly impressive number for a 6-13 team coming off a 7-24 season the previous year.
