Will update with trends once they're released.
The Charleston Cougars aren't playing great basketball heading into this matchup, but they beat up on Drexel when these clubs met back in December, and they win at home by an average of 5.9 points while allowing just 41 percent shooting from the field. The Drexel Dragons have not only lost six straight games, but they lose on the road by an average of 12.1 points, and they're just 3-9-1 against the spread on the road while 10-18-1 against the spread on the season. Drexel is also 0-4-1 against the spread in its last five games. Backing Drexel isn't much of an option these days. I'll lay the chalk with the Charleston Cougars at home.
