What to Know

The Akron Zips will take on the Fordham Rams at 5 p.m. ET Monday at Hertz Arena. The Zips will be strutting in after a win while Fordham will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Akron simply couldn't be stopped this past Thursday, as they easily beat the Wheeling Jesuit Cardinals at home 99-38.

Meanwhile, the Rams were close but no cigar this past Friday as they fell 75-73 to the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks. This was hardly the result Fordham or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 14 points over Maryland-Eastern Shore heading into this matchup.

This next contest looks promising for Akron, who are favored by a full 10.5 points. Those brave souls putting their money on Fordham against the spread have faith in an upset since their team's 1-3 record ATS can't hold a candle to Akron's 2-0.

The Zips are now 3-1 while Fordham sits at 2-2. Akron is 1-0 after wins this season, and the Rams are 1-0 after losses.
