The Wofford Terriers and VMI Keydets meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Cameron Hall.

The Wofford Terriers look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Wofford Terriers are averaging 82.6 points on 48.9 percent shooting and allowing 63.6 points on 41.6 percent shooting. Fletcher Magee is averaging 18.1 points and three rebounds while Cameron Jackson is averaging 15.2 points and 2.1 assists. Nathan Hoover is the third double-digit scorer and Storm Murphy is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Wofford Terriers are shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free throw line. The Wofford Terriers are allowing 32.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.8 rebounds per game. The Wofford Terriers have split their last six road games.

The VMI Keydets could use a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The VMI Keydets are averaging 74.3 points on 41.4 percent shooting and allowing 77.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Bubba Parham is averaging 21.9 points and 3.3 assists while Garrett Gilkeson is averaging 10.5 points and 6.1 rebounds. Sarju Patel is grabbing 2.9 rebounds and Greg Parham is dishing 3.1 assists. The VMI Keydets are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The VMI Keydets are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The VMI Keydets have won five of their last eight home games.

The Terriers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Southern. The Keydets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southern. The Terriers are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Keydets last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Terriers last 7 overall.

The VMI Keydets are just a mess right now during this losing stretch, which includes them losing eight of their last nine games and shooting under 40 percent while being outscored by an average of 15 points in their last five games. The Wofford Terriers are enjoying an offensive explosion right now where they're shooting 54.5 percent from the field in their last five games, and they've had some road success this season as well. Wofford is also 6-2 ATS this season as a favorite. I don't love laying big chalk, but this may be one of those times to bite the bullet and lay a big number.

Pick:
Wofford -18
