2:00 PM EST. VCU is a mid-major mainstay going back to the high profile squads former coach Shaka Smart took to multiple NCAA Tournaments, including a Final Four appearance back in 2011. The market trusts the Rams, and so they are often overvalued when playing "no-name" programs. Further inflating VCU's value is a two-game winning streak, but they were fortunate to escape St. Louis with a 75-74 overtime win after the Billikens blew a halftime lead at home.
Winning on the road in the NCAA isn't easy, and Eaglebank Arena is no different, where George Mason is 7-4 this season. The Patriots have little market appeal, and a 0-2 record their last two games isn't likely to inspire bettors to lay their hard-earned dollars down, but this is a game that George Mason can win outright, as VCU is not the same program that they've been for years with many conference foes being their equal and that includes GMU. These are fantastic inflated points and we're on it.
