USF Bulls vs Charlotte 49ers prediction

The Charlotte 49ers are a good basketball team that’s 12-1 SU at home this season, so it’s not a surprise to see them as a favorite. With that said, the USF Bulls have won 13 straight games and are the best team in the AAC. Getting USF as an underdog feels like a steal and makes turning down the free bucket impossible. USF is legit and beat Memphis (on the road) and FAU during this streak. Maybe Charlotte does protect home court and gets a statement win to pad its resume, but the value is with the red-hot USF Bulls and the free bucket. I’m siding with the road dog in this one.
