The Campbell Fighting Camels will be heading on the road to face the Winthrop Eagles in the Big South Finals this Sunday. Winthrop won both meetings between these teams during the regular season.
Winthrop has now won 6 games in a row heading into this game. They came away with a 82-61 win in their conference semifinal matchup against the Longwood Lancers. Winthrop shot 45.2% from the field, but only 25.9% from three. They had assists on 13 of their 28 makes from the field. Charles Falden led the team with 19 points, while Chandler Vaudrin chipped in with 16 points, 9 assists, and 8 rebounds. Winthrop outrebounded Longwood 40-35, and forced 9 more turnovers. The Eagles are averaging 79.5 points per game, and allowing 67.4 to their opponents. Chandler Vaudrin leads the team with 12.3 points and 7 assists per game.
Campbell comes into this game having won 9 in a row. In their most recent game, they went on the road and took down the Radford Highlanders 78-60 in the Conference Semifinals. Campbell shot 58.8% from the field, and 50% from three. The Fighting Camels assisted on 20 of their 30 field goals. Ricky Clemons led the team with 19 points. Joshua Lusane added 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. Campbell held Radford to 40.4% shooting from the field and outrebounded them 28-23.

Winthrop is 12-11 ATS this season, 10-11 ATS after a win, and 5-6 ATS at home. Campbell is 14-10 ATS this season, 10-5 ATS after a win, and 8-4 ATS on the road.
Winthrop has been great at home, but have not covered consistently. Campbell has been playing their best ball of the year, and have the ability to keep up with Winthrop. In their last 9, Campbell has only allowed 59.4 points per game, while scoring 69.7. I expect Winthrop to get the job done on Sunday, but the big spread is a lot to ask in the conference final. Give me Campbell to cover.
