Saint Louis vs. Richmond Prediction

The Richmond Spiders have been very solid on the offensive end this year. The Spiders won't dominate the offensive glass, but Richmond is shooting a 52.4 percent effective field goal percentage. On the year, the Spider has knocked down 34.2 percent from long distance and 53.2 percent from inside. The Spiders also don't get to the line consistently but should be able to get more attempts going up against Saint Louis. Richmond is currently shooting 71.6 percent from the line, with an average rate in the league. On defense, Saint Louis has held opponents to a 47.7 percent effective field goal percentage. Against the Billikens, opponents are shooting 31.9 percent from deep and 47.5 percent from inside. So it's been difficult for teams to finish much success against St. Louis when shooting the ball. However, the key here is that the Billikens don’t force many turnovers, at just 18 percent per game. On the other hand, the Billikens are shooting an effective field goal percentage of 51.1 percent. On the glass is where the Billikens are been supreme. They're grabbing 34.5 percent offensive rebounds on the season, which is a top-20 rate in college basketball. The Billikens won't shoot a ton of three-point shots despite shooting 36.4 percent from downtown. Saint Louis waits for good looks and pulls the trigger when that good look comes around. And then inside, Saint Louis is shooting 49.6 percent. Teams have shot 49.1 percent against Richmond inside the arc along with 35.7 percent from outside. Obviously, Saint Louis would have more success against Richmond with more three-point attempts, however, that just won’t happen. Richmond should be able to limit turnovers, shoot more attempts from the field while also getting more than their fair share of foul attempts. Give me Richmond.
