7:00 PM EST. LaSalle is 5-9 in Atlantic-10 play and short of a miracle run through its conference tournament, the Explorers are not going dancing. However, a signature win against a ranked conference opponent would do a lot to ease the sting of a less than stellar campaign. LaSalle was a 9½ point favorite on Saturday at home against George Mason, and while the Explorers won, they did not cover. Now, LaSalle is taking back an inflated price on the same floor. The underdog role has been a much better fit for the Explorers, who covered games against a pair of Power Fives schools in #3 Villanova and Temple earlier this season and have shown no quit lately. Surely the Explorers want to have a good showing against the first place team in the conference.
The Rams had their 16-game winning streak snapped on Friday night against St. Bonaventure, but even with the setback, URI has a three-game lead over the Bonnies and will not have to play them again unless they meet in the A-10 tournament. With four games remaining, the odds are with the Rams to finish tops in the conference. URI has only one game left with a team that has a winning conference record, and that's Davidson in its last game of the season. With the pressure of maintaining their hot hands off, this might be a tough spot for the Rams to get up for, as they can exhale for the first time in quite a while. This game has upset written all over it and we’ll probably play them in some money line parlays but for this flat wager, the inflated points are too sweet to pass up on.
