How To Bet The No. 22 Dayton vs. Richmond NCAAB Odds & TV Info
Why Bet The No. 22 Dayton Flyers
The Flyers (22-6 SU, 12-14-1 ATS) are struggling right now, having lost three of their last four games including their humbling 75-66 loss against Rhode Island as a 7.5-point home favorite on Saturday.
Dyshawn Pierre scored a team-high 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, but Dayton never led in the contest while making just 41.8 percent of their shots and allowing Rhode Island to shoot a blistering 56.0 percent from the field for the game.
Why Bet The Richmond Spiders
Richmond (15-13 SU, 10-14 ATS) snapped a three-game losing streak by beating Duquesne 83-67 on Saturday to cash in as a 1-point road favorite. Terry Allen scored team-high 25 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Spiders to victory while T.J. Cline added 23 points, five rebounds and seven assists in the win.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Dayton has won two straight and three of the last four in this rivalry and I believe that sheer desperation will be the driving factor that leads them to the outright road win over Richmond in this contest, although I like Richmond for the ATS cover.
Dayton has gone 0-5-1 ATS in its last six games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight meetings against Richmond. With Dayton going 0-5-1 ATS in their lasts ix road dates against the Spiders, I say the smart money goes on Richmond as a likely slight home underdog.
My final score prediction: Dayton 77 Richmond 75
