Meanwhile, the Camels are 6-2 ATS in their last eight Wednesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last four after an ATS loss. Campbell is 6-1 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up loss and the under is 4-1 in their last five after a straight-up loss.
PICK: I’m going to take Winthrop. Campbell came out of the gate strong but did have a couple of close escapes in their first four games. Since then it’s been a scoring drought for the Camels, as they haven’t posted more than 59 points in any of their last three games. Winthrop hasn’t had much trouble scoring this season themselves, with 75 or more points in all five outings. I like the Eagles to take control of this one and cruise to a cover.
