Duquesne at VCU -8.5 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Under

Going to take the contrarian side here in this contest based on the style change at Duquesne under first year HC Keith Dambrot. The former Akron head coach has brought tortoise type pace and stingy defense to Pittsburgh which has not been the norm in recent years. KenPom adjusted tempo numbers show the Dukes 315th in the nation averaging just 66 possessions in their games. The shot clock is being tested on both ends with Duquesne holding the ball for 18.8 seconds per possession (322nd) and opponents using an average of 17.8 seconds (297th) on offense. This tempo control system has led the Dukes to records of 12-4 straight up, 5-3 against the spread and 1-7 O/U the total. Tonight’s chore is to keep high energy VCU from speeding up the game and lighting up the scoreboard which isn’t easy considering the Rams are posting 79.5 points per outing.

Virginia Commonwealth has played four teams this season that fall into the ultra-methodical and defensive oriented categories with mixed results. At home versus Virginia they lost 76-67 going over the total, against Read more

Duquesne at VCU -8.5 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: VCU

Duquesne first-year head coach Keith Dambrot has done a marvelous job as the Dukes enter tonight's game at VCU with a 12-4 record including a 3-0 mark in A-10 play. To compare, a season ago, Duquesne won just 10 games and three games in league play. One thing the Dukes have been able to do is defend. Their first three A-10 opponents averaged only 51.6 ppg. But the team's strength of schedule needs to be called into question. There are 351 college basketball teams and Duquesne's SOS is currently 349th according to Sagarin. And despite being 12-4 and playing an ultra-soft slate, the Dukes are only +0.8 in efficiency. Without question, tonight serves as their toughest game to date. VCU has had its struggles as they adjust to life under first-year head coach Mike Rhoades. But after a tough non-conference slate and 5-5 start, the Rams have won five of six with the lone loss coming in overtime on the road against St. Joe's. Duquesne has been able to thrive thus far on gritty play, an underdog mentality, and as mentioned, a favorable schedule. The reality is this squad doesn't have much and Read more
