Free Rhode Island Rams vs. VCU Rams NCAAB Prediction:
Rhode Island has simply been too up and down on the offensive end to believe that they will actually threatened VCU in this contest. In all, look for the Rams of Virginia Commonwealth to prevail in this contest as they will take a 79-70 advantage in the end en route to a victory.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: VCU
Again, the defense for the VCU Rams has been too dominant on the season to think that they will have a setback in this contest.
