The VCU Rams are 33-8 SU following a loss under head coach Shaka Smart

George Washington has won and covered the number in its last two games, including a 93-67 victory over the Fordham Rams as 15-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total of 148.5.  The Colonials and Rams both enter Wednesday’s affair tied for second in the Atlantic 10 with 7-2 league marks, which is important to consider when making your college basketball betting picks.  Offensively, the team is averaging 75.2 points and shooting 47.5 percent, while also out-rebounding opponents by a 4.9 margin.  George Washington is 2-5 SU and 4-3 ATS as road underdogs of 6.5 to 9 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Colonials have four players averaging in double figures, with guard Maurice Creek leading the way at 14.0 points a contest.  George Washington trails only Saint Louis in the A-10 stats of scoring defense and field goal percentage defense, and is behind only VCU’s heavy-pressure Havoc and St. Louis in steals.

VCU had its six-game winning streak snapped last time out, as it suffered a 69-62 defeat to Saint Joseph’s as three-point road favorites, while going UNDER the betting total in three of four contests.  The Rams are 33-8 SU following a loss under the direction of head coach Shaka Smart, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page.  During the team’s current 17-game home winning streak, the squad has outscored opponents by nearly 18 points a contest.  VCU is 6-2 SUATS as home favorites of 6.5 to 9 points the last two-plus seasons.

The Rams have two probable starters averaging double figures, with junior guard Treveon Graham leading the way at 15.3 points a contest.  Over the past 10 games, VCU has held the opposition to 25.9 percent from beyond the arc, while its opponents have averaged just 4.1 3-pointers per game over that stretch.  Graham continues to be a consistent offensive threat—scoring in double figures in 22 of 24 games during the 2013-14 campaign.

Sports bettors will likely back the Rams due to their 9-4 ATS mark in their last 13 home games versus a team with a winning road record.
