TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27TH
#657 RHODE ISLAND (-7) over LaSalle at 5 PM EST
Sporting an 8-8 SU (8-8 ATS) tally through 16 games and off Sunday’s 10-point home win over Fordham, Rhode Island will travel to Gola Arena in Philadelphia and sprint past LaSalle on Wednesday night. The Explorers enter this conference battle off back-to-back SU and ATS wins over St. Joseph’s and Richmond and they’re in prime position to fall.
According to the History Book, the Rams have been an absolute force in this series lately inking a powerful 26-8 SU and 21-11-2 ATS mark in the last 34 meetings. In this run playing on the road, head coach David Cox’s boys improve to a rewarding 13-4 SU and 13-3-1 ATS. Also, as a conference road favorite arriving with steam off a straight up win, URI carries a profitable 37-14 SU and 32-18-1 ATS mark including an eye-popping 31-4 SU and 28-7 ATS provided the Rams are not off a blowout victory of 15 points or more.
Backing LaSalle in this setting isn’t advised either. At home running the court against an opponent that arrives off a straight up win, the Explorers have hit rock bottom notching a feeble 46-72-2 ATS record. Even worse, when priced as a home underdog and competing with four or more days of rest, LaSalle sports a woeful 19-37-1 ATS mark including a nasty 3-28 SU and 7-24 ATS if its opponent takes the floor off a hefty win of 10 points or more.
Defensively, the Rams are an absolute force this season allowing an average of only 69.3 points per game and they’ll have no trouble at all stopping an Explorers offense that has averaged only 67.5 points per battle this season. Take Rhode Island. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
