The Citadel Bulldogs and Wofford Terriers meet Thursday in college basketball action at Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium. 

The Citadel Bulldogs look for another victory after winning seven of their last eight games. The Citadel Bulldogs are averaging 86.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 86.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Lew Stallworth is averaging 17.9 points and 6.9 assists while Matt Frierson is averaging 17.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. Zane Najdawi is the third double-digit scorer and Kaiden Rice is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Citadel Bulldogs are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Citadel Bulldogs are allowing 30.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.3 rebounds per game. The Citadel Bulldogs have won their last three road games.

The Wofford Terriers look for another victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Wofford Terriers are averaging 76.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 67.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Fletcher Magee is averaging 17.5 points and 3.1 rebounds while Cameron Jackson is averaging 15.2 points and 1.7 assists. Nathan Hoover is the third double-digit scorer and Storm Murphy is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Wofford Terriers are shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc and 73.4 percent from the free throw line. The Wofford Terriers are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The Wofford Terriers have won their last seven home games.

The Bulldogs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Terriers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Southern. The Bulldogs are 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Wofford. The over is 36-15 in Terriers last 51 home games. The over is 7-3 in Bulldogs last 10 road games.

Both of these teams are really impressive offensively, and while the Wofford Terriers are better on defense, you're talking about the Citadel Bulldogs having four double-digit scorers and shooting elite percentages everywhere on the court. There's a reason the Bulldogs are 7-2 ATS on the season and 4-1 ATS on the road. I always like getting free points with a high scoring team, as Wofford is going to have to light it up to win this in a blowout. Give me the points.

Pick:
The Citadel Bulldogs +14
