@SidekicksPicks CBB Play of the Day - 3/5

The VCU Rams travel to Missouri to take on the St. Louis Billikens for a 4pm tip. The Rams are having a great season with a 21-7 overall record, 9-1 on the road. VCU is 2nd and the A10 with a 14-3 conference record.

The Billikens are also having a great season with an overall record of 20-10, 13-4 at home. They are 5th in the A10 with a conference record of 11-6.

VCU Analysis

VCU is one of the hottest teams in the country right now winning 8 straight games. They bring with them to St. Louis one of the best defenses! They surrender 60.5 ppg (15), force teams to shoot 38.6% from the floor (12), and hold teams to 26.4% from 3 (2). They are not known for their offense, but during their 8 game winning streak, they are averaging 74.3 ppg. This is an 8 point difference from their season average.

St. Louis Analysis

St. Louis is a team that prides themselves on their offensive ability. They average 77.7 ppg (35), shoot 46.3% from the floor (45), and 37.1% from 3 (38). They are an average defensive team, but are exceptional on the defensive glass, averaging 28.8 boards per game (48).

Sidekick's Verdict

VCU is one of the toughest teams in the country and are playing well on both ends of the floor. I’ve never been big on the St. Louis team, and I think this is a good opportunity for VCU to win their ninth straight game. The Rams also have an opportunity to compete for the A10 title with a win today and a loss from Davidson. The reason this line is +2, is because of a few questionable injuries on the VCU team.

I am banking on Williams Jr. to play today, but if he doesn’t I still feel good about VCU covering the spread and winning outright today
