In the Samford game, the Terriers scored 45 points in the first half and 42 more from there in a dominant 87-64 victory. Leading scorer BJ Mack posted 18 points with five boards. Max Klesmit added 16 points with three rebounds as well. 

Over on the Western Carolina side, they went on a 6-4 run through their first 10 games with losses to Wake Forest, East Carolina, UMBC and Gardner-Webb. It’s been a 2-5 stretch since then however; the only wins have been versus the Citadel and Chattanooga.

The Catamounts are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six at home and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win. The over is 11-4 in Western Carolina’s last 15 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Terriers are 1-5 ATS in their last six after an ATS win and 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win. Wofford is 4-1 in their last five Saturday games. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Wofford. That said, the Terriers have been a bit iffy lately on the scoreboard. They’ve hit 68 or fewer points in in four of their last seven games and have a tendency to cough up big totals to solid offensive teams. Western Carolina is certainly in that category when they’re playing well, but the Catamounts also give up quite a bit on the other side with regularity. This is something of a dice roll, but I think Wofford can pull it off.
