Tonight’s match will give the VCU Rams a chance to avenge their 63 to 61 defeat to the Davidson Wildcats. They will be facing off for the second consecutive season after they met on January 18.
Davidson climbed to the No. 1 spot with their win last week. The Wildcats have a perfect 6-0 record within the Atlantic 10 Conference, and Davidson has been ranked 25th in the most recent AP Poll. Their last loss was against New Mexico State on November 18th.
VCU’s win over St. Joseph’s Saturday helped them get back on track. However, they will be trying to avoid falling to 4-3 in conference play tonight with another loss to Wildcats.
Let’s look at the odds from WynnBET to win this A10 rematch.

VCU vs. Davidson Prediction & Pick
Davidson favored by 3.5 points may seem like a trap line, but I’m going with them to win against VCU once more. There are several key factors that I favor the Wildcats.
Davidson is the best rebounding team. VCU is ranked 275th, while Davidson ranks 69th in rebounding. This was evident in their previous meeting when the Wildcats out-rebounded VCU 32-20.
VCU’s record in turnovers per game is another factor. At 15.1, it ranks 327th in turnovers. Last week they had one of the best games in this stat, only giving up the ball seven times against Davidson. The Rams will be on the road tonight and I expect them back to their turnover-ridden ways which will only benefit Davidson.
