Succesful betting on college basketball is all about finding and taking advantage of mismatches that others may have missed. Heading into this matchup between the Fordham Rams and Tulane Green Wave, we like the fact that Fordham will look to get out and run vs a Tulane unit that is more comfortable burning clock on each possession. In addition, we see the lines over inflating the fact that the Rams don’t have a great track record vs the spread as underdogs, going 1-4 (last 5). While everyone else will be piling on Tulane, we like Fordham to cover at home.
