The Fighting Camels are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win. The Dons are 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games vs. a team with a winning straight record and just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Campbell has won 6 of their last 9 games and has been led by their offense this season which comes into this matchup ranked 95th in scoring offense, 28th in FG%, and 26th in 3P-FG%. San Francisco has won 8 of their last 11 games, which included an impressive 70-63 victory of St Mary’s, and comes into this game led by their defense that ranks 77th in scoring defense. San Francisco hasn’t been great ATS at home however, they are a respectable 14-6 at home and although this is a big number, I think the Dons defense will be able to do enough to get a double-digit win. Take San Francisco to cover.
