Mid February Update
The Atlantic 10 does not look dissimilar at this time than what oddsmakers and bettors predicted in the preseason. The regular season crown will go to one of the three teams. VCU currently sits atop the conference. They lead both Saint Louis and Dayton by one game.
VCU and Dayton have similar paths to close out the season. VCU does have that one game lead, but Dayton has beaten them in both matchups this season, giving them a leg up in a tiebreaker scenario.
Saint Louis is in the unique spot of having by far the most difficult remaining schedule, but being the team most in control of their own destiny. They have matchups remaining with both VCU and Dayton, and winning out would put them in a tie at worst atop the conference. They have no margin for error as they have lost to both Dayton and VCU to date. Dayton could win out and still not win the conference, as it is VCU that currently has the best record.
Fordham was the team that played best in non conference games. They have the best record in totality but are essentially eliminated when it comes to the conference crown.
Best A-10 Bet For The Regular Season
VCU controls their own destiny, has an easy remaining schedule, and does not have to play Dayton. They are highly likely to win their three remaining games against opponents that are not Saint Louis. The home matchup they have with Saint Louis is likely to be the game determines the winner of the conference. With that game on the horizon and VCU likely to be moderate favorites on their home floor, we will lay the -115 for them to win the A-10 regular season crown.

A-10 Basketball Conference Betting Odds:
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.
