Tony Caliente here with a look at the Saint Joseph's vs. Rhode Island A10 tourney semifinal game and what the line should be compared to what it actually is.

The line on this game was coming in at -9 favoring Rhode Island.  The line should only be somewhere in the -6 to -6.5 area according to the College Basketball Betting Power Ratings, thus making Saint Joseph's a solid bet to cover.   Joe's actually won the last game in this series.

Rhode Island lost by 30 points on Senior Night against Saint Joseph’s on Feb. 27. The Rams played in the NCAA Tournament last season and upset Creighton before losing to Oregon.

“We haven’t had that much adversity this year,” said Dan Hurley, the Rhode Island coach. “We haven’t really had like adversity in terms of like losing two in a row and having to respond, and then losing two in a row and having to respond against VCU in D.C. with a ton of pressure on you to bounce back and show who you are.

“I just think it was exactly the type of game that we needed, and we needed it to be tight and we needed to get back to that free throw line today and some show guts and some nerves and close it out,” Hurley added.

One should note that URI are 7-1 Against The Spread in their last 8 neutral site games.

Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games.
