Against The Spread Pick
The Richmond Spiders currently sit in the third spot in the Atlantic-10 and they will be looking for a fifth win in a row as the George Mason Patriots pay a visit. The Patriots are 1-5 in their last six games. Richmond has covered the spread in eight of their last 12 games, while George Mason has struggled against the spread, only covering in three of their last 13 games. The Spiders have won 11 of their last 13 home games. The Patriots have had better luck in recent head-to-head meetings. So much so they are both 7-3 overall and against the spread in their last 10 head-to-head meetings. Richmond was able to get a 10-point victory on the road against George Mason. The Spiders should pull out the win, but taking George Mason to cover 12 points is the right move.
Over Under Pick
Richmond has scored 70 or more points in seven of their last nine games. The Spiders and Patriots were able to clear a 134-point total by a lot in their first meeting this season. Richmond was able to win that game 97-87. A 184-point total in a road game for the Spiders makes the chances of an over 138.5 total all the more likely. Two of the last three head-to-head meetings have resulted in totals well over 139 points. A play on the over is the right move.
