Dayton vs. George Mason Prediction

I’m on Dayton here. Dayton’s been one of the best in the conference and in the country on both ends of the floor, and I don’t see George Mason being able to slow them down here. The Flyers get after it defensively and don’t give up many free throws, and that’s been how George Mason’s had a lot of success offensively this season. I think Dayton does enough to pick up a win and cover on the road so I’ll back the Flyers here.
