Troy is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the Sun Belt. The Trojans are also 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games and 6-21-1 ATS in their last 28 Thursday games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven following a straight-up win.

Troy has looked pretty solid during this mini-winning streak, logging at least 80 points in all three games. That said, Coastal Carolina managed a win the last time these teams met 74-73. This should be a fun one to watch, but I think Troy will get a little revenge here and cover.
