Point Spread: -2.00 | -106.00 UNC Wilmington (Home)
I like UNC Wilmington to cover the spread against Elon in this game on Wednesday. UNC Wilmington has won 4 games in a row and they just won their 1st game of conference play in their most recent game. They snuck away with a 2 point win over Delaware at home and Delaware has the best record in their conference at the moment. They haven't allowed any opposing teams to put up 70+ points in their previous 4 games and they have looked good on defense in those games. They have also been very good on their home court this year with 5 wins in their 6 home games. Elon have lost 3 of their 4 previous games and they haven't looked good in any of them. Their most recent loss was by 4 points to Charleston and that extended their losing streak on the road to 6 games in a row now. They haven't won a game on the road this year and I think they are going to continue with their road troubles in this game. UNC Wilmington has been at home this year and they have won 4 games in a row, coming into this game hot right now. Elon has had to face a lot of very tough teams too since a lot of their games have been getting postponed. They had to face Arkansas, Duke, and UNC in their previous 7 games and they got destroyed by each team. It's 1 think to play a team like that in a makeup game to help your team see what it's like to play against elite talent but it's another thing to repeatedly get beaten down by 20+ points by teams of that grade. Elon has been destroyed in so many games that they have to feel a bit demotivated this year when they are already 4-11 to start. I think UNC Wilmington has the momentum with them coming into this game and I think they are going to extend their win streak with another win here. I like UNC Wilmington to cover the spread here.
T.M. Prediction: 68-60 UNC Wilmington.
