The Terriers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, however, are just 1-4 ATS in their last 15 Wednesday games. The Keydets are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

Wofford is once again a very solid team in the Southern Conference this season and come into this game ranked 100th in scoring offense & 57th in scoring defense, however, VMI is certainly a team that the Terriers shouldn’t overlook, especially on their home court. VMI has an explosive offense that ranks 51st in scoring offense, & 4th in three-pointers made per game and as I think the Keydets are a bit underrated and should be able to keep this one close, I think the play is to take VMI and the points. Good Luck!
