The Samford Bulldogs can't get stops, haven't exactly beaten anybody up to this point and they've been fade material against the number dating back to last season. The Chattanooga Mocs looked great until back-to-back loses, but they're still la respectable team with good offensive depth and they've been a profitable team for bettors up to this point. Chattanooga is still the more trustworthy team here. I'll lay the chalk with the Mocs at home.
