The VCU Rams will have a chance to avenge their 63-61 loss to the Davidson Wildcats tonight. The two teams met on Jan. 18, and will now face-off for the second time this season.

The win last week vaulted Davidson into the No. 25 spot in the latest AP Poll, and the Wildcats are sporting a perfect 6-0 record inside the Atlantic 10 Conference. Their last loss came all the way back on November 18th against New Mexico State.

Meanwhile, VCU got back on track with a win against St. Joseph's on Saturday, but will try to avoid falling to 4-3 in the conference with another loss to the Wildcats tonight.

Let's take a look at the odds via WynnBET for this A10 rematch.

VCU vs. Davidson Prediction and Pick

Davidson favored by 3.5-point my seem like a "trap" line, but I'm going to back them to win and cover against VCU once again. There are a few key factors that make me sway towards the Wildcats.

Davidson is the superior rebounding team. They rank 69th in rebounding rate compared to VCU at 275th. That was on display in full force in their previous meeting, as the Wildcats out-rebounded them 32-20.

The other factor is that VCU is one of the worst teams in the country in turning the ball over. It ranks 327th in turnovers per game at 15.1. They had one of their best games in this stat against Davidson last week, only coughing up the ball seven times. Now that the Rams hit the road tonight, I expect them to get back to their turnover-ridden ways, which will only help Davidson.

Pick: Davidson -3.5
