CBI Tournament 2010 Odds:  St. Louis vs. VCU

CBI Tournament 2010 odds for St. Louis vs. VCU opened at VCU -9 at betED.com.

The Saint Louis Billikens and the Virginia Commonwealth Rams start their their 3 game championship series that will decide the CBI Tournament Champion. VCU is a 9 point favorite, with a total of 130 points tonight. Game 1 of this Championship series starts at 7:00 EDT.

Virginia Commonwealth has felt under-appreciated since the beginning of this season. It's only fitting that they are still feeling the same way, despite reaching the CBI Championship series. VCU entered this tournament with a chip on its shoulder, as they were certain they would be invited to the NIT Tournament. VCU is 25-9 SU and 17-14-1 ATS overall this season. The Rams were dominant at home, going 17-1 SU and 10-6 ATS this season. VCU is 15-11 ATS as the listed favorite this season, including 9-6 ATS as a single digit favorite. Digging deeper, VCU was 3-0 ATS as a home favorite of 6.5 to 9 PTS this season. The Rams love to play an uptempo frenetic tempo that forces their opposition into mistakes. The Rams went 11-7 SU in the CAA conference this season. VCU led the CAA in both steals and forcing turnovers. F Larry Sanders is a dominating presence for the Rams, as he averaged a team high 14.5 PPG and 9.2 RPG this season. The Rams have scored at least 75

PTS in 4 of their past 5 games.

A few interesting CBI Tournament St. Louis vs. VCU odds trends to consider here include:

The Billikens are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games as an underdog.

The Billikens are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall.

St. Louis is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS win.

The Rams are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite of 7.0-12.5.

The Rams are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 vs. Atlantic 10.

VCU is 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite.

The Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as the listed favorite. The  over is 4-0 in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning percentage greater than .600%. Guard Jay Gavin is the only Rams player that is listed on the injury report. Gavin is out for the season for personal reasons.

Saint Louis is very similar to VCU in their feelings about being slighted. The Billikens felt they would get a bid into the NIT, due to their strong finish in the tough Atlantic-10 conference. Despite going to a "lesser" tournament, Coach Majerus was happy for the opportunity. Saint Louis needs more experience of any sort, as they are the youngest team in the country. The Billikens don't have a Junior or Senior on their active roster. Saint Louis 23-11 SU and 17-11-1 ATS overall this season. The Billikens are 5-8 SU and 6-7 ATS away from home this season. You can never count out this young Billikens team, as they have won 5 games SU when trailing by double figures this season. What makes the Billikens so good is their affection for defense. Only 2 times in their 34 games did an opponent score in the seventies. Saint Louis led the nation in 3 point defense, holding opponents to only 27.5% shooting from behind the arc. G Kwamain Mitchell leads the

Billikens in scoring, averaging 16.3 PPG this season. The Billikens are 10-0 SU when Mitchell scores at least 20 PTS in a game this season.  

The Billikens are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as the listed road underdog. The under is 8-3 in their last 11 games as an underdog of 7 to 12.5 points this season. This young Saint Louis team has multiple injuries on their injury report. Guards Jeff Reid and Justin Jordan are the most recente injuries for the Billikens, as they are both out for the season.

Pregame.com projects the final score to be 64-61 in favor of VCU. The Saint Louis Billikens +9 is the Play of the Day!
