Over on the Catamounts’ side, they’re 13-6 so far. Western Carolina had lost three straight games, dropping to Furman, East Tennessee State and Mercer before taking out Wofford their last time up. 

In the win over the Terriers, Western Carolina’s top scorer was Mason Faulkner with 25 points, six assists and two rebounds. Onno Steger added 17 points with six boards there, and Carlos Dotson doubled up on 13 points and 12 rebounds. 

The over is 21-8 in the Catamounts’ last 29 overall and 4-1 in their last five Wednesday games. WCU is 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win. 

Meanwhile, the Spartans are 1-5 ATS in their last six Wednesday games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 after an ATS loss. UNCG is 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall and the under is 7-2-1 in their last 10 road games. 

During this winning streak, the Spartans have kept the offense humming along with at least 70 points in each outing. The defense has been pretty solid on the other side as well, since Furman (73 points) was the only team to eclipse 70 in that span. 

As for WCU, they had a couple of down games but bounced back well against Wofford. The Catamounts have been giving up a lot of points lately though, and have been pretty consistently off with that for much of the year. I’m going with the Spartans on the cover here.
