Why Rhode Island can cover

Rhode Island has won seven straight, its longest streak since winning 16 in a row in 2017-18, and 10 of 12 overall. A victory on Friday would mark just the 10th time in the last 54 seasons that URI would win eight straight.


Why VCU can cover

Even so, URI isn’t a lock to cover the VCU vs. Rhode Island spread. That’s because VCU has won four in a row and is shooting for its 20th consecutive winning season. It has qualified for the NCAA Tournament 11 times since 2003-04, including last season, and reached the national semifinal in 2010-11.

VCU Rams

Virginia Commonwealth lost the first game to Rhode Island by an 83-68 score back on Saturday January 9. It was a rare poor performance for the VCU defense, which allowed 1.087 points per possession. That still stand s as the worst defensive output to date. Defense is the hallmark for Mike Rhoades’s team.


Rhode Island Rams

Rhode Island is just 6-5 in A-10 play thus far. The URI Rams are coming off of an ugly loss to Dayton on the road last weekend in a game where they scored just 56 points. Offense has been a little tough to come by for Rhode Island recently.


Pick & Analysis

There is something very important to point out here. Rhode Island has played five straight games below 70 possessions. VCU is a faster team, but they’ve played three straight below that number against slower teams. URI’s pace has fallen off a bit, possibly because of their limited offensive upside.

Can the Richmond Rams asphyxiate Rhode Island?

The Richmond Rams can asphyxiate Rhode Island by making their shots and running them to death. VCU is a very deep team that will be fresher at the end, and both sides played Tuesday night and had to travel north from different parts of Virginia. VCU will still be well-suited to play its game, and it has to make more shots than it did in the first meeting. VCU shot 31.3 percent the first time against Rhode Island, and it cannot afford a similar performance. Where are you betting your college hoops picks?

Can the Kingston Rams win the turnover battle?

The Kingston Rams can win the turnover battle. Rhode Island likes to play a steal-heavy game itself, and while it isn’t in the top 10 of steals per game, it still forces more than eight thefts per game, and it managed to lose the turno ver battle by just one at 15-14 when the teams met in Richmond. Rhode Island plays good enough defense, and VCU’s shooters are poor enough that Rhode Island can count on being able to hold VCU to about 35 percent shooting. Throw in a few steals, and the Kingston Rams would be golden.
