The Furman Paladins have a clear edge at home here, where they win by an average of 17 points and shoot 52.7 percent from the field. Furman could pull away in the second half. However, we're getting points with a solid Samford team and that's top-50 in the country in scoring. This has a chance to be one of the better games on the card. Give me the points.
