Dayton Flyers vs. Saint Louis Billikens Predictions

The Dayton Flyers are entering the game with a strong season record and a seven-game winning streak, showcasing their ability to dominate on the court. The Flyers’ offense is led by forward DaRon Holmes II, who averages 20 points per game, and their shooting accuracy from the field (47.7%) and beyond the arc (39.5%) ranks them 39th and 31st in the nation, respectively. With a perfect home record and a solid performance on the road, the Flyers are the favorites going into this matchup.

On the other side, the Saint Louis Billikens have struggled this season, but they have shown flashes of potential, especially in their three-point shooting where they rank 60th in the nation at 37.4%. Gibson Jimerson, averaging 15 points per game, will be a key player for the Billikens as they look to leverage their home-court advantage at Chaifetz Arena and improve their conference record. Despite a two-game losing streak, the Billikens will be hoping to capitalize on any opportunity to cause an upset.

Defensively, both teams will be looking to tighten up their game. The Flyers will rely on Holmes II not just for scoring but also for his defensive prowess, as he also leads the team with 8 rebounds per game. The Billikens will need to find a way to contain him and the Flyers’ perimeter shooters to keep the game competitive. This game will be a test of the Billikens’ resolve and the Flyers’ ability to maintain their position at the top of the conference standings.

Dayton Flyers vs. Saint Louis Billikens Pick

The Dayton Flyers have demonstrated consistent strength throughout the season, boasting a 22-6 overall record and a formidable 12-4 in conference play. Their offensive efficiency, with a field goal percentage of 47.7% and a three-point percentage of 39.5%, makes them a potent threat against any team. Coupled with their seven-game winning streak and the standout performance of DaRon Holmes II, the Flyers have the momentum and the statistical edge to secure a victory. The moneyline bet for the Flyers, despite the shorter odds, is justified by their superior win-loss record, both overall and within the conference, as well as their ability to perform under pressure as evidenced by their perfect home record and resilience on the road.

While the Saint Louis Billikens have the advantage of playing at home and have shown proficiency from the three-point line, their overall record of 11-18 and a less impressive 4-12 conference record suggest they may struggle against a team of Dayton’s caliber. The Billikens’ recent form, with a two-game losing streak, and their ATS record of 11-17, further diminish the appeal of a moneyline bet on them. Given these factors, and considering Dayton’s strong ATS record on the road (6-5), the Flyers are poised to continue their winning ways, making the Dayton Flyers moneyline bet the more compelling choice for this matchup.
