Charleston Southern vs. USC Upstate Prediction

I’m leaning towards Charleston Southern here. I just don’t feel like laying points with USC Upstate when I don’t think there’s that much separating these teams. USC Upstate has the slightly better offense and I feel the Buccaneers have the much better defense and I think having points in my back pocket is where I want to be in this game.

Chris’s Pick Charleston Southern +5.5
