The Runnin' Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Big South, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Highlanders are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up win and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win. The over is 4-1 in Runnin' Bulldogs last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Highlanders last 5 overall.
The Gardner-Webb Bulldogs come into this game red hot offensively, as they're shooting 51.8 percent from the field and winning by an average of six points in their last five games. On the road, the Bulldogs shoot nearly 48 percent from the field, so there's reason to think this can continue. The Radford Highlanders have the edge of playing on their home court and are an experienced squad, but they can be leaky defensively at times and haven't been the best when it comes to covering numbers. The Gardner-Webb Bulldogs are simply shooting the ball too well at the moment to turn down this many free buckets with a ticket to the big dance on the line.
