The Colonials are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic 10, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Wildcats are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The home team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The home team has won the last five meetings between George Washington and Davidson, and a lot of those games weren't close. George Washington is one of the worst offensive teams in the country right now and has been held to 60 or less points in five of its last seven games. The Davidson Wildcats have been hit or miss this season, but they've spent a lot of time on the road, and we know at home this is a club that can get hot on the offensive end. I'll eat the chalk here even if it's more of a fade against the Colonials.
