Prediction

Expect Dayton Flyers to secure the win and cover the -8.5 points spread against VCU Rams. Here's why:

Dayton has been in exceptional form, boasting a potent offense and solid defense. Led by D. Holmes II, they have the firepower to outscore VCU and secure a comfortable victory. Moreover, Dayton has a strong track record at home, where they have been dominant throughout the season.

On the other hand, VCU has struggled in recent games, especially defensively, which could play into Dayton's hands. With their ability to control the pace of the game and capitalize on scoring opportunities, Dayton is well-positioned to win convincingly and cover the spread.

Considering Dayton's strong performance and VCU's recent struggles, the Dayton Flyers are the recommended pick to win and cover the -8.5 points spread in this matchup.
