The Bulldogs are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games. The Falcons are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
The Citadel Bulldogs can flat out put the ball in the hoop, especially from long range where they're averaging 13 made threes per game. Any time we get this many free points with a team that can already score at a high rate, I'm taking it. Air Force may win, but the Bulldogs keep it within the number.
