In a day of upsets the Northeastern Huskies pulled off the big upset on Thursday beating Georgetown. Northeastern trailed by 11 at the half but rallied outscoring the Hoyas by 18 in the second half. Reggie Spencer led Northeastern in scoring 18 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Scott Eatherton had 12 points and 10 rebounds, David Walker had 12 points and four rebounds, and T.J. Williams had 10 points. Northeastern shot 44.7 percent from the floor and took just five three-point shots hitting one. Northeastern may have trouble on the boards as while they outrebounded Georgetown it was just a different style of team.
Charlotte is 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games, 5-2 against the spread following a game that they covered the spread, and 5-2 against the spread in their last seven neutral site games. Northeastern is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight neutral site games, 1-4 against the spread against Conference USA, and 1-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
The line for this one has Charlotte favored by 3.5 and the total at 143 and my free pick here is over the total as I look for both teams to take mostly close range shots and shoot at a high percentage. My stronger play is on who will ocver the spread and I will put that strong pick in the Premium Area as well as have it availbale on the App
