UNC-Greensboro vs. Furman Prediction

I’m on Furman here. I get why points with UNCG are tempting in a spot like this, but the Paladins come into this game with revenge on their minds and have been playing really well since getting fully healthy. UNC-Greensboro’s a solid team but I think in the end, Furman gets the win and cover here. Give me Furman laying the points.
