Both of these clubs are playing solid ball entering this contest and they split the two meetings back in January. However, if forced to pick this game, I have to lean Campbell. The Campbell Fighting Camels have a clear edge on the offensive side and they haven't lost a game since January 20. This should be a fun contest and there's a lot on the line here, but I give the slight edge to Campbell.
