The Charlotte 49ers are 3-10 this season and they have lost two of their last three games. Charlotte is averaging 71.5 points and they are shooting 40.5 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 81.9 points and their opponents are shooting 48.5 percent. Adrien White leads the 49ers averaging 11.2 points per game. Braxton Ogbueze is averaging 11.2 points, Bernard Sullivan is averaging 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds, and Joseph Uchebo is averaging 9.5 points and 8.8 rebounds. Sullivan is out with a concussion and that isn’t likely to help Charlotte.
Southern Miss is 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games against a team with a losing road record. Charlotte is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games and 1-8 against the spread on the road against a team with a losing home record. The favorite has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
We have two pretty miserable teams so getting points with the home team isn’t something I can pass up.
