Betting Matchup

Dayton has a game and half lead over Rhode Island atop the Atlantic 10 standings at a perfect 12-0 straight-up. It is 23-2 overall and the current winning streak stretches to 14 games going back to late December. The Flyers are 13-11-1 against the spread after failing to cover in four of their last five games. The total has stayed UNDER in three of their last four games. Sophomore guard Obi Toppin posted 19 points in Saturday’s 71-63 road win against UMass. He continues to lead Dayton in scoring with 19.7 points per game. The team is averaging 81.2 points on the year.

The Rams are a bubble team at best for this year’s NCAA Tournament at 17-8 SU overall. They did nothing to help their cause with back-to-back losses (SU and ATS) to George Mason at home and to Richmond on the road in their last two games. They are just 1-3 (SU and ATS) over their last four games with the total going OVER or ending as a PUSH in seven of their last nine contests. VCU lost its first game against Dayton this season 79-65 on Jan. 14 as a 8 ½-point road underdog. It is averaging 72.0 PPG and giving up 64.3 points a game on defense.

Betting Trends

-- The Flyers are 9-1 SU in their last 10 road games but that record fall to an even 5-5 ATS. The total has gone OVER or ended as a PUSH in seven of their last 10 games on the road.

-- The Rams have won eight of their last 10 home games SU and they have covered ATS in three of their last four games at home. The total has gone OVER or ended as a PUSH in their last four home games.

Betting Matchup

The Bears will be going for the series sweep after beating Oklahoma 61-57 on Jan. 20 as 10 ½-point home favorites. Saturday’s 70-59 home victory over West Virginia as five-point favorites ran their SU unbeaten streak to 22 games. A SU win on Tuesday would set a Big 12 record. Baylor is 23-1 SU overall with a 16-8 record ATS after going 5-2 ATS in its last seven games. The total has stayed UNDER in four of its last six outings. Jared Butler put up 21 points against West Virginia. The sophomore guard leads Baylor in scoring with 15.3 PPG.

Oklahoma is an even 6-6 SU in conference play following Saturday’s 87-70 road loss to Kansas as an 11 ½-point underdog. This snapped a four-game winning streak ATS while going 3-2 SU in the same five-game span. The total has gone OVER in three of those last five games. The Sooners are 16-9 SU with a 11-13-1 record ATS. They have a trio of players scoring at least 14 points a game as part of a 71.6-point team scoring average. Oklahoma’s defense is allowing 68.0 PPG at the other end of the court.

Betting Trends

-- The Bears have gone a perfect 7-0 SU on the road this season while covering the closing spread in six of those games. The total has stayed UNDER in nine of 12 conference games this season.

-- The Sooners are 11-1 SU in 12 home games this year but that record drops to 5-6-1 ATS. The total has gone OVER in three of their last five games at home.
