The Wildcats are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win. The Bluejays are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The underdog is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two programs. This seems like a point for the Bluejays to keep it close as this spread is too high for Nova to cover. They have failed to show dominance this year so I’ll take the points with the Bluejays in this one.
