Flyers Have Been Money vs Colonials

Two teams on the fringe of being ranked meet Friday when the George Washington Colonials and the Dayton Flyers clash in Ohio. Dayton has proven to be profitable for bettors against George Washington with the Flyers going 6-0 ATS in the last six games between the teams while going 4-2 SU.

Shark Bites

  • George Washington is 4-10 ATS in their past 14 gams on the road.

Dayton has been a hard team to figure out this season. The Flyers have wins over teams like Iowa and Vanderbilt, but have lost to Chattanooga and La Salle. Dayton seems determined to play to the level of their competition, but they have also yet to really put a complete lineup on the floor. Dyshawn Pierre has missed time due to suspension, Kendall Pollard missed a couple games with an Achilles injury and Charles Cooke didn’t play against Davidson Tuesday due to an oblique strain.

The Colonials offense has run through Tyler Cavanaugh all season long as the junior has averaged 17.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. In George Washington’s past two games specifically, both of which were wins SU and ATS, Cavanaugh has averaged 28 points while shooting 62.9 percent.
