Over on the Furman side, they’re 14-4 this year. The Paladins had a seven-game win streak going versus USC Upstate, North Greenville, Winthrop, Mercer, VMI, East TN State and Chattanooga but lost their last game to UNCG. 

In the loss to the Spartans, Furman’s Noah Gurley topped the team on 27 points with eight rebounds and four assists. Both Clay Mounce and Mike Bothwell scored 13 points there, combining for five assists and seven rebounds. 

The over is 6-2 in the Paladins’ last eight overall and 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games. Furman is 6-2 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. 

Meanwhile, the Catamounts are 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six after an ATS win. Western Carolina is 4-1 ATS in their last five versus a team with a winning straight-up record and the over is 9-2 in their last 11 road games. 

Over this five-game winning streak, the Catamounts have been scoring pretty well. They’ve got at least 79 points in each of those games, and on the whole Western Carolina has been putting up some pretty good points totals this season. 

As for Furman, they weren’t quite as impressive scoring-wise, but they had a nice run going during that win streak. Still, I like the Catamounts a little better right now so I’m going with them to cover. Give me WCU.
