The Line: UNC Greensboro Spartans -1 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Chattanooga Mocs and UNC Greensboro Spartans will clash Sunday afternoon at the Greensboro Coliseum. The previous meeting at the end of January resulted in a 77-67 Chattanooga victory.
Since then it’s been all downhill for the Mocs, as they’ve lost four of their last six games. During that stretch, they’re averaging 71.8 points on 42.5 percent shooting and allowing 73.6 points on 45.3 percent shooting. It also doesn’t help that they’re making just 68.9 percent of their free throws and averaging more than 14 turnovers during that stretch as well. On the road, they average 69.8 points and allow 80.5 points. They are 11-8-1 ATS overall and 6-6-1 ATS on the road.

The Spartans haven’t been much better, as they’ve also lost four of their last six games. During their stretch, they’re averaging 68.2 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 71 points on 40.3 percent shooting. They’ve averaged 13 turnovers and made only 68.4 percent of their free throws. It’s pretty much been a hit or miss at home, as they average 74 points and allow 75.6 points. They are 10-12-1 ATS overall and 4-5-1 ATS on their home court.
This is a true definition of a toss-up as both teams have been playing horrible basketball recently. And in games like this, if you feel the need to pick it, it’s always better to go with the home team. It’s where they’re most comfortable and have a better chance of winning.
That would be the Spartans, a team that’s won five of the last six meetings anyway. They’re also 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.
You wouldn’t catch me putting any money on this game and you probably shouldn’t either. But if you must, you’d be wise to risk it on the home team.
