Will update with trends once they're released.
The Chattanooga Mocs have been the more profitable team with a 12-8-2 ATS record on the season and covers in seven of their 11 road games. However, the Wofford Terriers have been a machine at home where they win by an average of 16 points and shoot 50.2 percent from the field and 40.1 percent from deep. I'm not stepping in front of Wofford on its home court due to that offensive explosion. I'll lay the reasonable number.
