Wofford Terriers -7.5. O/U:141
The East Tennessee State Buccaneers and the Wofford Terriers will meet up in college basketball’s Southern Conference Tournament Sunday.
East Tennessee State enters this game with a 24-8 mark overall. The Buccaneers have five wins in their last six tries, taking out the Citadel, Mercer, VMI, Western Carolina and then Chattanooga in the first round of the tourney Saturday.
In the win over the Mocs, East Tennessee State’s Tray Boyd led the way with 21 points, two rebounds and one assist. Bo Hodges added 12 points with three rebounds and two assists for the Buccaneers in that one as well.
Over on the Wofford side, they’re 27-4 this season. The Terriers have an epic 18-game winning streak going right now, and in their latest win they took out VMI in the first round of the conference tournament.
In that Saturday victory, Wofford’s Nathan Hoover led the team with 17 points and three rebounds, and Chevez Goodwin posted 14 points off the bench. Every Terriers starter scored at least 11 points in that one.
East Tennessee State is 2-6 ATS in their last eight overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. The Bucs are 2-6 ATS in their last eight versus the Southern and the under is 6-1 in their last seven neutral-site games.
Meanwhile, the Terriers are 5-0 ATS in the last five overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four after an ATS win. Wofford is 5-1 ATS in their last six neutral-site games and 1-4 ATS in their last five Sunday games.
Wofford’s current run in is pretty darn impressive. The Terriers have won by at least eight points in each of their last seven games, and during that span they’ve scored at least 80 in all but one game (72 versus Furman).
The thing is, East Tennessee State drove Wofford to a 78-76 thriller the last time these teams met up on February 7. That was a comfy home game for the Buccaneers however, and despite their recent success I don’t see this one being so close. I’m probably going to stay on the bandwagon and go with Wofford.
