The Lancers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games, however, are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games, however, are just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss.

Longwood was able to pick up a much-needed victory against Campbell, but this Lancers are going to be one of the worst team in the Big South and could be in real trouble against the explosive Wintrhop offense as they currently rank just 285th in defensive FG%. Winthrop has been very solid at home this season, which includes an 87-71 victory against a very good Furman team and as I think the Eagles put up 85+ points in this one, I’m taking Winthrop to cover this large home spread. Good Luck!
