Richmond +110 over Maryland

7:00 PM EST. Maryland was ranked as high as #10 to start the year, they’re still 4-1 after five games and they look to be a decent play spotting a lousy basket against a Richmond squad that doesn’t come close to matching  the Terps outstanding college basketball pedigree. If these same Richmond players were wearing the uniforms of another Power-6 squad, they would be favored over Maryland. Opportunity here is knocking. 

Maryland is indeed 4-1 but let’s have a look at that. Its one loss was to George Mason, a team that was just schooled at the Crossover Classic in three straight games by Washington, Nevada and South Dakota State, respectively. The Terps four victories occurred against Quinnipiac, George Washington, Vermont and Hofstra, the latter by two. They beat Quinnipiac by 14, GW by 7 (GW is horrible) and they beat Vermont by 9. The Terps could easily be 3-2 or 2-3. Their schedule has been weak and they have yet to be battle tested. Maryland’s Strength of Schedule (SOS) ranks 277th in the country. 

Richmond’s SOS ranks 130 positions better than the Terps at 147th. Richmond’s two losses were to a Utah State team ranked 68th in the country and to a Drake squad that is ranked 51st in the country. The Spiders were in a position to beat Drake but still only lost by one possession (73-70). Richmond beat Hofstra by 13 while the Terps beat Hofstra (luckily) by two. 

You may recall last year that Richmond was everyone’s “sleeper” pick to do some damage but COVID had a massive impact on the college basketball landscape. The Spiders look well-positioned to be a “post-hype sleeper” this year (meaning: breaking out the year after everyone was on the bandwagon). The defense is solid, the offense will not fall far with Grant Golden and Jacob Gilyard still in key facilitating and scoring roles. Tyler Burton has plenty of upside, as well, giving Richmond a potential NBA prospect, and returning 86.1% of minutes (per Bart Torvik) is perfect for Mooney’s system, which thrives on familiarity and instinctive reads. Maryland does not look right and they’re the inferior team that is favored. Attack.
