The Wofford Terriers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Wofford Terriers are averaging 72.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 67.9 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Nathan Hoover is averaging 14.4 points and 1.5 assists while Storm Murphy is averaging 12.4 points and 2.6 rebounds.

The Keydets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Terriers are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games, -5-1 ATS in their last 18 games following a ATS win and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games. The under is 4-1 in Keydets last 5 road games. The under is 4-0 in Terriers last 4 overall. The favorite is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
Both of these teams are losers when it comes to covering the number, but VMI is losing on the road by an average of nine points while shooting 40.6 percent from the field. The Wofford Terriers win at home by an average of 15.6 points and shoot 51.3 percent from the field. The offensive issues have been a constant issue for the VMI Keydets, and that's not going to fly against a Wofford team that's one of the better shooting teams in the country. I'll lay the number if forced to pick this contest.
