Davidson vs. Richmond Prediction: Can Davidson Cash Again in Atlantic 10 Championship Final?

Today is one of the best non-action sports days of the year. I say "non-action" because even though there are games, the real reason it's one of the best sports days of the year is not because of action. We're getting brackets people. And when we get brackets, we get crazy. There's no other time of the year when you might be in a gambling pool with your friend's grandma. It's a wild time. One thing I like to do to make Selection Sunday even more special is to gamble on the games that are played before the brackets come out. It just feels right. Honestly, it's good for the soul. And if we play our cards right, we can literally have action all the way up until we start actually seeing the brackets released. That's just living people.

Davidson Team Total Over 70.5 (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

This is the best price I've seen on 70.5 so I went there. I won't lie, I was very tempted to go Davidson TTO 73.5 +150 at FanDuel, and honestly, I may do some of those in the tournament. That just looks like fun to me. A little plus money can really change your day. Some would even say it can change your life.

What can I say about these kids that I didn't say yesterday. If you didn't see it, I took their team total over 69.5. It cashed pretty easily. These kids can shoot the rock and there is more than one of them so if one is off, another one can just step up. That's fun.

Today the Wildcats have Richmond for the A-10 Championship. The fact that the Spiders just beat Dayton yesterday is impressive but Dayton is no Davidson. Not by a mile. Still, I will respect the Richmond kids as they have not given up 71 points in three straight games so they have that on their side.

What they don't have on their side is the fact that they would have given up 71+ yesterday had Dayton been able to hit their threes. They were the 43rd best three-point shooting team in the country on the season but only managed to hit five of 20 yesterday. That's bad.

Davidson on the other hand will make it rain from out there. They were the eighth-best three-point shooting team in the country this season and they have multiple guys who can drill. They went 13-27 the last time these teams met en route to an 87-point outburst. We have multiple ways of getting home on this number (pace, free throws at the end, bad defense by Davidson) so I think it might be the best bet I've ever seen in my life.
