Two teams jockeying for Atlantic 10 Tournament positioning meet when Richmond travels to face St. Bonaventure on Friday night.

St. Bonaventure is the defending A-10 champs, but have struggled relative to expectations this season, but will look to close out their regular season with a win on senior night against the Spiders.

Here are the odds for the A-10 finale for these two from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Richmond vs. St. Bonaventure Prediction and Pick

The looming question for this game is the status of Osun Osunniyi, who missed the team's last game (a blowout loss to VCU) with an injury. Osunniyi is one of the best rim protectors in the country, anchoring the Bonnies zone defense and posting a top 15 block rate in the country.

If he's out, this game should be closer to a PK, but either way I do like Richmond's ability to stay within two possessions on the road. The Spiders won by 10 at home earlier this season but have been inconsistent all season, going 3-3 over their last six. However, outside of a 20 point loss to VCU, the team lost by three in overtime and two in the final seconds to Dayton.

While the Spiders haven't shot the ball all that well this season, 10th in the A-10 in 3-point percentage, but their shot profile hints that the offense is better than that, ShotQuality ranks their offense 31st in the country.

If Ossunniyi is ruled out, I'll be playing Richmond, but the line movement up towards the Bonnies by half a point may hint that some are expecting to play. For now this is a lean towards Richmond, but wait for more news.

Coach Chris Mooney always has his team prepped for the Bonnies zone, the two years prior Richmond lost two games to SBU by three points each time. These two teams always play tough and I expect a tight game yet again.

LEAN: Richmond +4
