Charleston Southern is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the under is 23-8-1 in their last 32 road games. Charleston Southern is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 9-1 in their last 10 home games.
I’m leaning towards Gardner-Webb here. Both teams have had issues with consistency and snagging wins as of late, but the Bulldogs have gotten back to business in recent games and more importantly, they’ve been playing better defensively that Charleston Southern. I think this is a spot where a lack of defense comes back to bite the Bucs, so give me Gardner-Webb here.
