Appalachian State is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following an ATS loss. UL-Monroe is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 50-19-1 in their last 70 home games against a team with a losing road record.


I’m leaning towards Appalachian State here. There isn’t a ton of meat on the bone in this game, and there’s not a huge edge to go off of here, but ranking wise, App State is the better team on both ends of the floor and historically, the road team has dominated this matchup. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but I’d stick with App State in this one.
