Charlotte 49ers Betting Preview
The Charlotte 49ers look to get above a .500 record. The Charlotte 49ers have won 4 of their last 5 home games. The Charlotte 49ers are averaging 64 points on 50.5 percent shooting and allowing 61.5 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Nik Graves is averaging 13.5 points and 4 rebounds, while Igor Milicic Jr. is averaging 11 points and 9 rebounds.

The Charlotte 49ers are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.5 rebounds per game.
The Charlotte 49ers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but I'm not sure if they're the better team. The Utah Valley Wolverines are on a tear offensively through two games, and they already have a road win in overtime over Sam Houston. There are some playmakers on this Utah Valley roster, and there are also a lot of upperclassmen, so I'm not worried about them being scared on the road. This line is simply where the game is being held. Give me the free bucket with Utah Valley.
