Dayton has won three of its last four games, most recently picking up a 62-58 win over VCU on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Saint Louis snapped a two-game skid with a 76-71 effort against Rhode Island earlier this week, highlighted by Gibson Jimerson's game-high 24 points in 38 minutes of action.

Can Dayton stand strong at home? Or will Sain Louis ensure that the Flyers fans leave UD Arena disappointed?

Dayton vs Saint Louis Prediction & Pick

A visit to UD Arena typically means bad things for Saint Louis. The Billikens have lost eight straight road games against the Flyers, having not won in Dayton since January 2014. What's even worse is that Saint Louis only averaged a 52.6 PPG clip in those games, losing each by an average of 14.8 points.

I don't expect Saint Louis' luck to change, especially with Dayton being 12-1 at UD Arena this season. The Flyers' defense truly thrives at home, where they only allow 58.5 PPG, block 9.9% of shot attempts and average 26.7 defensive rebounds per game.

After defeating the A-10's top team (VCU) in its last outing, I predict that Dayton will keep the momentum coming with another strong effort against Saint Louis.

Final Score Prediction: Dayton: 70 | Saint Louis: 65

Dayton vs Saint Louis Best Bet

I'm looking at Dayton covering the 4.5-point spread as the best bet tonight. Saint Louis has struggled with the spread lately, going 1-4 ATS in its last five games. Even worse is the fact that the Billikens have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last 12 A-10 contests.

Although Dayton has also had spread issues, it's still 6-2 ATS in its last eight February matchups. Considering how the Flyers have easily beaten the Billikens at UD Arena over the last decade, I'm confident that Dayton can cover as the -4.5 favorite.

Bet: Dayton -4.5 (-120)
