VCU vs. Richmond FREE College Basketball Pick, 2-15-2020


 

VCU Rams (17-7) vs. Richmond Spiders (18-6)

Saturday, February 15, 2020, 4:00 PM EST

Line: Richmond -1.5

Handicapper: Fred Berns

Pick: Richmond Spiders -1.5

 

Saturday sharp action from the Robins Center in Richmond, VA with two local teams Atlantic 10 teams aiming for bragging rights when the VCU Rams visit the Richmond Spiders.  VCU easily handled Richmond last month in an 87-68 victory as -9 point home favorites and the Rams are (3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) the last three meetings vs. the Spiders.  


VCU (9-15 ATS) aims to bounce back after a defeat to George Mason on Wednesday, 72-67.  The Rams' inability to rebound showed as they were outworked on the boards by - 21 rebounds to George Mason.  The Rams average 72.6 PPG on offense and a good portion will come from 3-point range where they knock down 35.4 from beyond the arc.  Defensively, VCU allows 63.8 PPG which ranks them 43rd in the nation.  


Richmond (13-11 ATS) is back home after winning two games on the road, most recently with a convincing win over La Salle, 74-47 and covering as -4.5 point road chalk.  The Spiders held La Salle to just 29.8% from the field and outrebounded them by 18. Junior F Grant Golden led the Spiders with 16 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.  Richmond has the ability to score the basketball and they average 75 PPG and 36.0% from 3-point range while allowing 67.5 PPG on defense.  


VCU can level the standings with the Spiders in the Atlantic 10 with a win but Richmond will be looking for revenge after an embarrassing loss to the Rams last month.  Richmond enters on a 3 game winning streak while the Rams have lost two of three. G Marcus Evans leads the team with 3.0 assist per game but he is listed as questionable after leaving the floor in their last game. Richmond will have the home crowd in their favor as they seek revenge and they are fantastic late in the game hitting 78 FT % which ranks them 8th in the country.  The Spiders rebounding better in their last outing and I like that trend to continue as all angles point towards taking the Richmond Spiders -1.5 at home.
