What to Know
The Rhode Island Rams will head out on the road to face off against the Boston College Eagles at noon ET Sunday at Silvio O. Conte Forum. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.
The Rams have more to be thankful for after their game against the Illinois State Redbirds this past Wednesday. Rhode Island enjoyed a cozy 57-44 victory over Illinois State. Guard Brayon Freeman (21 points) was the top scorer for Rhode Island.
As for BC, they can't say they have nothing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week. They strolled past the Wyoming Cowboys with points to spare last Monday, taking the matchup 59-48. The top scorer for BC was guard Jaeden Zackery (16 points).
The Rams are expected to lose this next one by 6. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 2-4), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Rhode Island is now 2-4 while the Eagles sit at a mirror-image 4-2. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Rhode Island has only been able to knock down 38.60% percent of their shots, which is the second lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. BC has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 48th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 66.2 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
