Gardner-Webb is 12-13 ATS overall, 5-5 ATS following a win, and 8-6 ATS on the road. Campbell is 12-10 ATS overall, 8-5 ATS following a win, and 4-6 ATS at home.
Campbell has been on a tear, winning 7 straight by an average of 8.4 points per game. Gardner-Webb has had an up and down season, and have not won more than three games in a row all year. The Runnin' Bulldogs are also 4-10 on the road this season, so a lot of trends would have to change for me to back them in this one. Campbell has shot the ball better of late and overall, while doing a better job on the defensive end. They have been solid at home with an 8-3 record. Give me Campbell in this one to win as the road dogs.
