Richmond Spiders at George Washington Colonials

NCAAB: Saturday, January 12, 2019, Charles E. Smith Center, Washington, DC, 4:00 PM ET

The Atlantic 10 rivals will face at the Charles E. Smith Center on Saturday as the Richmond Spiders are taking on George Washington Colonials looking to bounce back from their worst performance of the season in a loss to Dayton, while the hosts won the previous two and opened the conference play with a victory over Saint Joseph’s. Richmond was on the winning side in recent H2H duels as they won four out of the previous five meetings but George Washington was better in the latest tilt played in February 2018.

The Spiders suffered another conference defeat

Richmond displayed a rather poor performance in the opening game of the conference play as they were destroyed by the Dayton Flyers but the Spiders failed to bounce back against the Rhode Island Rams at home and now are facing the third consecutive defeat. The Spiders dropped to the 11th position in the Atlantic 10 Conference with the 6-9 record, five wins behind the leaders VCU Rams, Davidson, and St. Louis, and three more than the last-placed La Salle.

Sophomore guard Jacob Gilyard led the Spiders in a 78-67 loss to the Rams with 19 points, five assists, and game-high four steals; Grant Golden added 17 points, game-high eight rebounds, and game-high six dimes, while Jake Wojcik contributed with 12 points and four boards. Richmond trailed at halftime by ten points and although they improved defensively in the second 20 minutes, they couldn’t make a comeback win mostly because of poor rebounding. The Spiders recorded 24 boards in opposite to Rhode Island’s 35, while the hosts made 13 free throws fewer than the Rams.

The Spiders have the 263rd offense in the NCAAB that averages 70.4 points per contest, while their defense allows 70.6 points per game (163rd). Richmond’s rebounding is 346th as they are recording 30.0 boards per game, while they are 70th when it comes to assists per contest with 15.5 dishes a night. Richmond is 116th in field goal percentage as they have 46.5 percent from the floor and 229th from downtown with 33.1 percentage, while they are the 156th with 8.0 three-pointers made per game.

The Colonials fell short to Dayton at home

George Washington opened the conference play with a convincing road win over Saint Joseph’s Hawks but they failed to make it three in a row as the Dayton Flyers handed them a narrow loss and secured their second conference victory in the process. The Colonials dropped to the 13th place in the Atlantic 10 Conference with the 5-10 record, six wins behind Davidson, VCU, and St. Louis, and two ahead of the La Salle Explorers.

Junior guard DJ Williams led the Colonials in a 72-66 loss to the Flyers with 20 points (9-17 FG, 2- 3PT) and five rebounds; Maceo Jack followed him with 13 points and four boards, Javier Langarica scored 12 points, while Justin Mazzulla chipped in with 11 points, five rebounds, four dimes, and two thefts. George Washington actually had a 10-point lead at halftime but they were completely shut down in the second 20 minutes and managed to score just 26 points and allowed 42 in return. The Colonials finished the tilt with 37.5 percent from the floor which turned out to be crucial in a loss and second half meltdown.

The Colonials have the 336th offense in the NCAAB that averages 64.5 points per contest, while their defense is allowing 70.7 points per game (170th). George Washington is the 288th rebounding team in college basketball as they are recording 33.8 boards per game, while they are 327th when it comes to assists per contest with 11.0 dishes a night. George Washington is 324th in field goal percentage as they have 40.6 percent from the floor and 284th from downtown with 31.6 percentage, while they are the 316th with 6.1 three-pointers made per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Richmond won six out of the previous ten H2H encounters including four out of the last five, while the Colonials were victorious in three out of the past five meetings at the Charles E. Smith Center. George Washington scored even 1043 points in the latest clash and considering that they have one of the least efficient offenses in the country, I don’t think that will happen here. Still, I am not impressed with Richmond’s home form this term and although I expect a close encounter that could go either way, I am going with the Colonials.

Prediction: George Washington Colonials -1 (-110)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These teams don’t have efficient offenses but they used to produce high-scoring tilts in the past as over is 4-1 in the last five H2H meetings and over is 6-0 in the previous six duels in George Washington. I am going with over because over is 4-1 in Colonials last five home games; over is 4-1 in Colonials previous five vs. Atlantic 10 opponents, over is 5-0 in Spiders last five vs. a team with a losing straight up record, while over is 9-2-1 in Spiders previous 12 Saturday games.

Prediction: Over 137.5 (-110)
