The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Winthrop Eagles meet in college basketball action from the Winthrop Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will be out to bounce back from a 60-58 loss to UNC-Wilmington last time out. Jomaru Brown leads Coastal in scoring with 16.3 PPG along with 2.8 APG while Essam Mostafa has 14.3 PPG and a team-high 12 RPG to lead the Chanticleers on the glass by averaging a double-double per game. Linton Brown has 12.3 PPG and Josh Uduje has 10.8 PPG with 3.7 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for the Chanticleers so far this season. Henry Abraham also has a team-high 5 APG to lead Coastal Carolina in assists this season. As a team, Coastal Carolina is averaging 76.7 PPG on 46.2% shooting from the field, 35.5% from three and 83% from the foul line this season.

The Winthrop Eagles will try to build on their 99-52 win over subdivision Toccoa Falls last time out. Kelton Talford leads the Eagles in scoring and rebounding with 16.6 PPG and 7.6 RPG while Toneari Lane has 12.5 PPG and Cory Hightower has 13.1 PPG with a team-high 3 APG to lead the Eagles in assists this season. Sin’Cere McMahon has 15.5 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Winthrop up to this point in the season. As a team, Winthrop is averaging 75.9 PPG on 47.3% shooting from the field, 38.5% from three and 73.5% from the foul line this season.

Coastal Carolina is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the under is 15-6 in their last 21 games following an ATS loss. Winthrop is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a win by 20+ points while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games following a win.

I get why Winthrop is favored at home, but that’s about the only reason I can see why the Eagles would be favored here. Coastal has gone 0-2, but a loss to Missouri is not that bad it’s just the loss to USC Upstate you’d like to forget about. Still, the Chants have been the higher-scoring offense with the better defense and I just think this is a game where we’ll be happy to have the points in our back pocket. Give me the points with Coastal here.
