(NCAAB) Davidson vs. Richmond, 01/14/2022 9:00 PM, Score: 87 - 84
Point Spread: 0.00 | -109.00 Richmond (Home)
Result: Loss
10* Richmond (9:00 ET): This is a critical home game for Richmond, who already has two conference losses. They welcome in a Davidson team that is 13-2 SU overall and 3-0 in A-10 play. I say the Spiders should still be the favorites here; they are 7-1 SU at home and have had Davidson’s number the last few years. Head to head, Richmond has won seven of the last nine head to head matchups while also going 8-1 ATS. The circumstances dictate that they’ll be the more “desperate” (and aggressive) team tonight.

Richmond did pick up its first league win last time out, beating UMass 80-72. They failed to cover the spread, but it was 10.5 points. Just a win is all we need here and the schedule certainly sets up well for the Spiders. That win against UMass took place on January 5th, nine days ago. They’ve had two games postponed since. Davidson was in action this past Tuesday, also against UMass (won 77-67). The Wildcats have actually played two games in the time since Richmond last took the court.

The other was a 72-68 win over Rhode Island. Like the game vs. UMass, that was at home. Davidson is 3-1 SU/4-0 ATS in “true” road games thus far, but save for the cross-country trip to face San Francisco (which they lost), this is the toughest one. The Wildcats didn’t cover in either of those last two victories and Richmond is a place where they’ve lost AND failed to cover three straight times. Note that Richmond was up 19 at the half over UMass and won comfortably despite the Minutemen shooting 55% from three. This spot sets us quite well for the home team. 10* Richmond
