Winthrop is 9-23 ATS in their last 43 road games and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall. Gardner-Webb is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games while the under is 9-3 in their last 12 Wednesday games.
I’m sticking with Gardner-Webb here. The Bulldogs are the much hotter team, especially at home, and Winthrop’s really struggled to put it all together in a lot of their recent road performances. I don’t expect Gardner-Webb to run away and hide here, but I think that they do enough to get themselves a win and cover in this one.
