St. Bonaventure enters this game against Fordham as big favorites, which feels like a trap.
Let’s look at the trends and recent form of these two teams to determine if the Bonnies can be trusted as such a strong contender.
Here are the latest odds via WynnBET.
This spread looks like a winnable bet and there are many reasons why.
Let’s start with St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies are 2-12 to the odds in their last 14 games and 1-7 to the odds in their last eight home games. As this year’s favorite, St. St. Bonaventure has been a double-digit favorite five times this year. They are 1-4 in those five games.
On the other hand, Fordham presented at a much better clip. Fordham is 13-8 to a draw during the season and 4-4 to a draw away. They have lost double-digit five times this year, and are 4-1 in those games.
The image becomes clearer to you? There is nothing about these betting trends that gives me confidence in St. Bonaventure to win the explosive match tonight.
Fordham played slightly better defensively than the Bonnies, pulling off more defensive counterattacks while keeping their opponents on a lower effective goal-scoring rate. In terms of attack, their numbers stack up pretty closely. Darius Quisenberry and Antonio Daye Jr are strikers capable of averaging over 16 points per game. Fordham have not won many games (they are 3-7 in the last 10), but they certainly tend to cover. I bet we will see that trend continue.
Pick: Fordham +12.5
