The Richmond Spiders are 4-2 this season and are coming off of a win against nationally ranked Cal. Richmond is averaging 86 points and they are shooting 50.1 percent while defensively they are allowing 79.2 points and their opponents are shooting 48.4 percent.

Florida is 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five games, and 2-7 against the spread in their last nine home games against a team with a winning road record.
The total here seems a bit on the high side and I expect this one to stay under the total as both of these teams play dense.
