Dayton vs Richmond Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup on impressive winning streaks, but only one team will remain on that winning streak here. Dayton has been great on defense this season, but Richmond has almost been just as good. These two teams have very similar metrics, but Dayton is the better team in just about all of them. This should be a great game to watch, but I am going to side with Dayton on the road. The Flyers have been very impressive to start the season and I like them to continue their winning streak here.
