The Dayton Flyers are one of the younger teams in the country, but they are 12-7 so far this season and get a matchup with the Fordham Rams at home on Tuesday. 

Fordham (9-8) nearly upset the No. 25 Davidson Wildcats on Saturday, and it could be undervalued in this spot on the road. 

Here are the latest odds via WynnBET:

Fordham vs. Dayton Prediction and Pick

The Rams have been solid against the spread this season, going 7-4 as an underdog and covering in seven of their last nine games. 

Dayton has covered in four of its last five games, but is just 2-4 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season. 

The Flyers are a solid defensive team, ranking 18th in the country in opponent points per game and 78th in opponent effective field goal percentage. Fordham may struggle offensively against Dayton, as it is just 251st in the country in effective field goal percentage.

Still, the Rams have lost just four games by double-digits this season and only one by more than 14 points. 

I think Fordham keeps this game close enough to cover the 14 points. 

Lean: Fordham +14 (-110)
