Line: Dayton -24

Total: 128

The Dayton Flyers will host the St. Louis Billikens in an A10 battle Sunday afternoon from the University of Dayton Arena. St Louis is coming off a rough 71-52 home loss to St. Bonaventure, and Dayton crushed Richmond 75-59 in their latest action. Dayton defeated St. Louis in both meetings last season.

Billikens Offense Continues to Struggle

The St. Louis Billikens were dominated in the first quarter leading to a 71-52 blowout loss to St. Bonaventure on Tuesday night. The Billikens were out scored 45-16 in the first half and only shot 41% from the field on the night, while the Bonnies were able to shoot 45%. Davell Roby was by far the best player for St. Louis, going 6 for 7 from the field for a total of 17 points. The junior guard has heated up, scoring 13 or more points in six out of his last eight games, and is now second in team scoring with 10.6 points per game. The Billikens are playing without leading scorer Jermaine Bishop who has not played since the middle of December. Bishop is averaging 11.4 points per game, and is out indefinitely. St. Louis has now lost seven out of their last eight games, and sit at the bottom of the A10 standings with a 1-5 conference record. They are currently placed down at  311th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings.

St. Louis is one of the worst offensive teams in the Nation, averaging only 60.6 points per game, ranking them down at 349th overall, and are shooting 39.5% as a team. The Billikens are now allowing an average of 71.7 points per game, placing them at 168th overall.

Dayton Defeats Duquesne for Fifth A10 Win of Season

The Dayton Flyers played a complete game on both ends of the court in their 75-59 home win over Richmond on Thursday night. Dayton made 23 of 47 shots, good for a 48.9% mark from the field, and held Richmond to only 41.8% shooting which included a 2 for 20 performance from three-point range. Charles Cooke was solid, going 5 for 10 from the field, for a total of 17 points. The senior guard is having a productive season, averaging a team-leading 17.9 points per game and 5.4 rebounds per game. Scoochie Smith also played well, adding 15 points which included a 7 for 8 mark from the free throw line.  Smith has played very consistent basketball this season, sitting second in team scoring with 13.6 points per game. The Flyers have rebounded nicely from their first conference loss of the season by defeated Duquesne and Richmond, and are currently in a three-way tie for first in the A10 with a 5-1 record. Dayton is currently ranked 36th overall in  Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings.

Dayton is now scoring an average of 75.4 points per game, ranking them 140th overall, and own a 46.4 field goal percentage. The Flyers play great defense, conceding an average of only 64.5 points per game, placing them 36th overall.

Trends:

The St. Louis Billikens are:

  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
  • 7-19 ATS in their last 26 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600.

The Dayton Flyers are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games.
  • 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
  • home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between St. Louis and Dayton.

I have to go with Dayton in this contest. St. Louis has had a big problem scoring points all season, and are averaging only 59.5 points per game in their six conference games, so it will very tough for them to have any success against the Flyers stifling defense. Dayton is only allowing 62 points per game in their conference action, and they are going against one of the worst offensive teams in the Nation, so the Flyers should take this contest in a huge blowout
