PICK: I’m going with Davidson. Charlotte has been mostly flat this season, posting 65 or fewer points in three of four games. (The outlier was 78 against a bad SC State team.) Davidson has been able to hang with every team they’ve stepped on the floor with so far, and their two losses came by a combined three points. I like the Wildcats to lead this one front to back and bang out a relatively smooth cover.
