Richmond is 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, 4-1 against the spread following game that they covered the point spread, and 3-11-1 against the spread in their last 15 non-conference games. Minnesota is 6-1 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points, 2-5 against the spread following a win, and 1-7 against the spread in their last eight road games.
This one has a tight number but I am going to go with the big conference road team and the points.
