Richmond is coming off a 75-71 road loss to St. Bonaventure in their last game. That loss snapped a five-game win streak for Richmond, who is currently six games under .500 in conference play. George Washington is coming off a 72-62 home loss to La Salle in their last game. George Washington has lost three of their last five games overall.

Richmond allows 66.8 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a +7.8 scoring differential so far this season.

Richmond is 15-12 against the spread this season and 6-4 against the spread in their last ten games. Richmond is also 5-5 against the spread on the road so far this season. George Washington is 14-13 against the spread this season and 5-5 against the spread in their last ten games. George Washington is also 7-7 against the spread at home so far this season.
I will take Richmond on the road in this one. George Washington lost by ten to a far worse La Salle team in their last game, so I see Richmond producing an even better performance against GW. I will lay the eight points on the road with Richmond.
