The George Mason Patriots and Richmond Spiders face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Robins Center. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was Richmond that won 77-57.
George Mason comes into this game with an 11-9 record overall and they have gone 12-9 against the spread. In the last game against La Salle the defense really struggled giving up only 83 points and that led to the defeat. George Mason is averaging 72.9 points while their defense is giving up 68 points per game. Josh Oduro has been the top player for George Mason averaging 17.7 points while shooting 56.3 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Richmond Spiders who sit with a 15-8 record and they have gone 12-11 against the spread.

Forward Tyler Burton has been the top player for Richmond averaging 17 points while shooting 47.4 percent from the field. There are three different players that are averaging at least 12.3 points per game. In this game, Richmond needs the defense to be good to get the job done.
George Mason is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following an against the spread loss. The under is 5-0 in Richmond’s last five games. The over is 4-1 in George Mason’s last five games played on Monday. Richmond is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games. Richmond is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall.
Richmond’s defense was strong in the last game, and that is going to be the case again in this game. I expect George Mason is going to struggle to score, and that will be the difference as Richmond cruises to the victory. Back Richmond against the spread. In terms of the total I expect the under to cash.
