Randy’s Free Pick
The Winthrop Eagles are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but I'm not laying points with a team that's getting outscored on the year and is losing their last 5 games by an average of 6.2 points. Despite two fewer wins, you can argue Charleston Southern is the better team. It's Bucs or pass for me.
