The Atlantic 10’s top-seeded team in the Davidson Wildcats will host the Rhode Island Rams on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time at John M Belk arena in Davidson, North Carolina.
The Rams have certainly struggled in league play recently, yet were able to erect themselves from a two-game losing streak their last outing versus the Billikens of St Louis.
Davidson continues to pick up victories as they won their fourth straight contest vs the Saint Bonaventure Bonnies in their last time out as leading scorer on the season in Kellan Grady posted 29 points in the contest while also finishing 5 – 9 from long range in the victory.
In all, Davidson happens to be 8 – 2 against the spread in head-to-head action versus the Rhode Island Rams in recent matchups.
On the other hand, Rhode Island happens to be losers of three of their last five games, overall, while Davidson has been victorious in their last five home games.
Kellan Grady along with the Jon Axel Gudmundsson are the tip of the spear as it relates to the Davidson offense as they are averaging 18 and 16 points, respectively, for the Wildcats this season.
Also, with Luke Frampton providing a spark on the offensive end for Davidson, this has propelled them to the top spot within the Atlantic 10 division, a full three games ahead of the second-place team in the Dayton Flyers.
And with Davidson possesses three legit double-digit scores on a nightly basis, their offense has struggle throughout the season in averaging just 71 points per game on 44% shooting from the floor.
It is for this reason that the defense has certainly been the saving grace for a Wildcats team that is allowing just 65 points per game to opponents on a solid 40% shooting from the floor. In fact, the Wildcats have only allowed opponents to score 70 points or more in just one of their last 10 games, overall.
Nonetheless, these teams will meet for the first time the season as Davidson was able to pick up a slim, one point victory in their last outing in March of 2018 during the Atlantic 10 tournament.
However, Davidson has been nearly flawless at home recently and will certainly look to continue their stellar streak of play versus a Rhode Island team that, despite currently being 5-4 in the Atlantic 10, will be looking to extend their winning play in picking up their second straight conference victory on Wednesday night.
Rhode Island Rams
Much like Davidson, Rhode Island has had to rely on its defense, more often than not, this season in which to make up for an inconsistent offense that has had trouble throughout the season in putting the ball in the basket.
Leading scorer on the season in Jeff Dowtin, however, continues to led the team in the scoring department as he posted 17 points in their last outing versus the St Louis Billikens at home as the struggling Rams were able to pick up a much-needed conference victory in the end.
Of course, Rhode Island shot horrible from the floor on the night at 42% while connecting on just for three-pointers; however, they were able to force 14 turnovers during the contest while also making good on 17 free throw attempts compared to just six for the Billikens.
As stated, the win halted a two-game losing streak for Rhode Island as the competition level will certainly increase, moving forward, particularly with outings versus the top-seeded Davidson Wildcats along with a matchup immediately after with the Atlantic 10’s second place team in the Dayton Flyers.
In other words, the Rams will certainly need to ramp up their offensive output while continuing to play consistent on the defensive end in which to keep this game competitive.
Rhode Island currently shoots at a 43% clip on a nightly basis while averaging just 70 points per game.
Of course, their inconsistencies have been much more visible on the road this season as they have experienced a noticeable drop-off in offensive production away from their home court lately as well as throughout the season.
And with Davidson playing at a top level on the defensive end these days, look for the Rams to rely even more on Dowtin along with Tyrese Martin, who is coming off of a double-double performance with 16 points along with 10 rebounds in their victory versus St Louis, to kick-start their offense in this matchup vs Davidson.

Free Rhode Island Rams vs. Davidson Wildcats NCAAB Prediction:
While Rhode Island will certainly be entering this matchup with a bit of momentum after a rough patch of play, Davidson has simply been too dominant on their home court recently as well as throughout the season and will pull out a victory in the end in Wednesday night’s Atlantic 10 Showdown.
Of course, the defense for both teams will certainly make an appearance throughout the duration of this game, however, one should look for the home team to push the pace consistently in this contest while hitting some critical baskets down the stretch in which to pull away late with a much-needed conference victory.
In all, it is for this reason that I happen to believe that the Davidson Wildcats will outlast the Rhode Island Rams in this contest by a final score of 75-67.
4* Free NCAAB Betting Pick: Wildcats -5
While no line has been assigned to this matchup as of yet, one can certainly expect for the Davidson Wildcats to show and prove in this all-important conference showdown vs a Rams team that will be looking to play much better, offensively.
Nonetheless, Rhode Island has simply struggled too much in this area throughout the season as Davidson will be looking to assert themselves early and often on this end of the floor en route to the victory.
