The Explorers have not played well offensively, averaging 69.8 points per game. The team is averaging 64 points per game in their last four games and will struggle to score against the Rams, who are holding opponents to 69.3 points per game and have played better over the last week, holding their last four opponents to 61 points per game. Even though the Explorers are holding opponents to 69.2 points per game, they have struggled in their last four games, giving up 74.2 points per game, and will struggle against the Rams, who are averaging 73.9 points per game. With the Rams winning the last five games between the two teams, Rhode Island is the best bet here.

Prediction: Rhode Island Rams

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Explorers aren’t much of an offensive threat with the team averaging 64 points per game in their last four games. They will have a hard time scoring more than 60 points against the Rams, who are holding opponents to 61 points per game in their last four games and have held two of their last three opponents under 60 points. The Rams will have an easier time scoring because they are averaging 73.9 points per game and are facing a defense that is giving up 74.2 points per game in its last four games. However, they won’t score enough points to push the score over the total. With the Rams and Explorers playing under the total in three of their last five games, the under is the smart play here.

Prediction: Under
