Wake Forest is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight non-conference games, 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 home games, and 2-5 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Richmond is 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games, 6-2-1 against the spread in their last eight road games, and 1-4 against the spread against the ACC. The road team is 9-1-2 against the spread in the last 12 meetings of these two.
This game looked to me like a pick so even getting the small number with Richmond puts the odds in our favor.
