UNC Wilmington is led by guard Jaylen Sims who is averaging 12.1 points while shooting 37.5 percent from the field. 

Much like the Seahawks, Drexel has had some real issues this season and coming into this game they have only one win over their last ten games. During those nine losses, Drexel has also failed to cover each of the spreads.

Over the last five games, Drexel’s defense has really struggled giving up 76.8 points per game and letting opponents shoot 50 percent from the field.

Drexel is led by Camren Wynter who is averaging 16.1 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field. Even though the Dragons have been struggling, Wynter has kept chugging along, and others need to step up. If Wynter is the only one having a big game in this one, they are going to have a lot of issues coming away with a win. 

The under is 6-2 in UNC Wilmington’s last eight games overall. The over is 19-9 in UNC Wilmington’s last 28 games played on a neutral site. Drexel is 1-9-1 against the spread in their last 11 games overall. Drexel is 3-13 against the spread in their last 26 games played on Saturday. 

UNC Wilmington is playing the better basketball as of late and they are going to have success in this game. The Seahawks defense is going to slow down Drexel and that will be enough for them to cover the spread.
