Radford Highlanders vs Longwood Lancers prediction

The Longwood Lancers are probably the better team on paper, and them being at home doesn’t hurt. The Longwood Lancers are undefeated at home this season. However, the value is with the Radford Highlanders and the free points, a team that recently beat West Virginia on the road as 6.5 point underdogs, and they’re 10-4 ATS on the season. Radford is a top-100 defensive team in terms of field goal percentage allowed, and it shoots the three ball at an above average clip. It’s hard to turn down the free points with the Radford Highlanders. Give me the road dog in this contest. You can use this pick as a part of your parlay.
