Dayton has been the best regular season team in the Atlantic 10 Conference over the past few years and the sportsbooks expect that to be the case again this season. The Flyers have the best facilities, fan base, and head coach in the conference and that will always allow Dayton to be perennial contenders for the title.
Saint Louis is always tough and should challenge Dayton, but the Billikens seem to underachieve year after year. Loyola Chicago is a newcomer to the conference and have seemed to build a culture that will not allow them to fail. It remains to be seen how the Ramblers will make the transition up in class.
VCU, the Atlantic 10 tournament bridesmaid, is the fourth favorite to win the titles and is the final team in the conference under 10/1. Davidson, George Mason, and Richmond are all 10/1 and will beat the top three teams this season.
In terms of the national picture, Dayton (34th), Saint Louis (41st), and VCU (60th) are the only Atlantic 10 members getting any national championship buzz. This will not be the year the A10 makes it back to the Final Four.

A-10 Conference History
The A-10 is a 15-team conference that has had seven different tournament winners over the last seven seasons. VCU is the only consistent in this conference as they have made the final six of the past nine seasons. Newcomer Loyola Chicago should make an instant impact in a league that should be fun this season. The Atlantic 10 has not had a final four appearance since UMass in 1996.
