The Charleston Cougars are 8-5 (0-1) this season and have lost two of their last three games. Charleston lost to Delaware by a score of 67-66 in their last game. Charleston cut the deficit to one with 1:12 left in the game but missed both of their shots to try and win the game. John Meeks led the Cougars with 17 points and 5 rebounds in the loss.

Elon is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The under is 4-1 in Elon’s last 5 games. Charleston is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 6-2 in Charleston’s last 8 home games.
Both of these teams come into this game giving up over 76 points per game, so this should be a high scoring game. Charleston has a big rebounding advantage, but shoots the ball at a slightly lower percentage than Elon does. I like Charleston to win this game, but I am taking Elon to keep it within single digits.
