Coming into this game, we see this as a classic opportunity to cash in on a contrarian play, as the public is likely to jump on Rhode Island as the -1.5 point favorites. However, our analysis shows that the line for this game is set too high, and the St. Bonaventure Bonnies are an excellent bet as the road underdogs. While others might get scared off by the Bonnies’ recent record vs the spread at away (2-8), we are focused on the line and see it being set too high. In this scenario, we like St. Bonaventure to cover at +1.5.
