NCAA Basketball Picks In-Depth: Miami is too athletic and tall with a 1″ height advantage along their starting five. Richmond plays a stingy brand of defense but the overall chemistry of Miami appears to have come together and the have the more talented scorers from 3-point range. Miami has shooters all over the court and could get back one of their best players in starting point guard Angel Rodriguez (questionable). Miami vs Richmond Vegas Odds Total is at 133.0 points at SPORTSBOOK.ag

Vegas Sharps Bottom Line: Miami has played the tougher competition in the ACC and have played with a huge chip on their shoulder after the NCAA Tournament snub. Richmond can match Miami’s shooting at mid-range but the Canes can score fast and furiously. Miami’s physicality in the paint could also be telling with 7’0″ UM center Tonye Jekiri (8.7 PPG 10.1 REB 1.5 BPG) giving the Canes and interior force. Bet Miami to win by a double-digit cover on the spread as road underdogs in the Spiders backyard.
