Richmond vs VCU

College Basketball
7:00 PM EST
Rotation #679
Richmond +2.5 over VCU (loss)
Mike Rhodes is a heck of a coach because this VCU team lost just about every starter from last year and heading down the stretch are the top team in the A-10.  This team is great at home as well, but I do think Vegas is giving Richmond a lot of respect with this low line.  The Spiders are just an overall solid basketball team that has the size advantage, experience, better scorers and holds the advantage in just about every other area.  This team is stacked and I couldn’t imagine how great they would be if Nick Sherod was healthy this season.  Richmond has not played in many conference games so when you see them sitting in 6th place it’s not a true metric of who they are.  Look for the Spiders to get the road win and to prove they are contenders to win the A-10 tournament coming up in March.  Take Richmond.
