3* NCAAB SMASH on Rhode Island +4
Rhode Island is 0-4 but has played well in its last two games. After opening the season with a pair of duds against Norfolk State and Virginia Tech, it has turned in a pair of solid performances against Ohio State and Seton Hall, covering the spread in each. Those strong outings have built the confidence level of the Rams, and I believe they are poised to pick up their first win of the season tonight.

Loyola Maryland is 4-1 but hasn't played the same level of competition as Rhode Island. It has been overvalued by oddsmakers in the early going as it is just 1-2 ATS in the 3 lined games it's played. It remains overvalued here.

The Greyhounds are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 37-50 ATS all-time when laying points under coach Patsos.

The Rams are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games versus a team with a winning record.
