Cedric Henderson Jr. leads Campbell with 14.2 PPG 4.2 RPG while Jordan Whitfield is 2nd in scoring and in assists with 13.8 PPG and 2.7 APG to make up the pair of double-digit scorers for Campbell heading into Saturday’s matchup with Longwood. Jesus Carralero has 8.8 PPG as well as a team-high 3.8 APG and 4.1 RPG to lead the Camels in assists at the moment. As a team, Campbell is averaging 75.5 PPG on 50.5% shooting from the field, 34.9% from 3-point range and 69.4% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 75.3 PPG on 47.2% shooting from the field and 33.1% from 3-point land this season.
The Longwood Lancers will be out to bounce back from a 65-59 loss to USC Upstate last time out. Juan Munoz leads Longwood in scoring with 12.2 PPG to go along with 3 APG while Deshaun Wade is 2nd in scoring with 11.5 PPG to go along with 4.2 RPG and Justin Hill has 10.3 PPG and team-highs of 5.1 RPG and 3.8 APG this season to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Longwood heading into Saturday’s matchup with Campbell. As a team, Longwood is averaging 67 PPG on 45.6% shooting from the field, 33.5% from 3-point range and 70.3% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 71.4 PPG on 45.1% shooting from the field and 31.9% from behind the 3-point line this season.
Campbell is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record while the over is 5-1 inn their last 6 Saturday games. Longwood is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 10-2 in their last 12 home games. The home team is 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
I went back and forth on this game as it could genuinely go either way and as a pick ‘em, the line definitely represents that. However, Longwood’s really struggled against the number as of late and if you lose to USE Upstate, you lose a lot of my respect in the betting market. I’ll take a shot with Campbell on the road in this spot.
