I’m backing Fordham here. These are two teams that are just headed in different directions, with Fordham winning and covering five straight while Richmond’s lost four straight and have failed to cover in any of their last six games. Richmond’s solid home record is the only reason I can justify them being favored here, but I still want no part of Richmond here. Give me the Rams.
