Point Spread: -5.00 | -110.00 Samford (Away)
Result: Win
This is a 10* SOUTHERN GOY on Samford.

I think Samford should be a bigger favorite in this matchup. It's 14-9 overall, while Western Carolina is 12-11.

The Bulldogs are tough on both ends of the court, averaging 78.3 PPG, while allowing 71.

The Catamounts have been decent as well, averaging 74.7 PPG, and conceding 69.2.

The favorite is 7-3-1 ATS the last 11 in this series. Samford is 0-3 ATS in its last three, but that's signficant to note as well, as the Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five after three or more straight ATS setbacks in a row.

Samford is the better team, and it won't be looking past the Catamounts. I expect the Bulldogs to keep the foot on the gas until the final buzzer sounds.

Lay the points, the play is SAMFORD.

Good luck, NP
