Wofford is Having Issues

Wofford is really struggling heading onto this game and in the last game the defense was awful. Wofford scored only 67 points while the defense gave up 82 points to Furman. Jackson Silviss had a strong game putting up 11 points, but that was really the only bright spot. Wofford is averaging 74.6 points while their defense is giving up 74.3 points per game. The defense is ranked 258th overall and they are going to need the defense to be better. If the defense struggles, this is going to be a long game.

Samford vs Wofford Betting Prediction 

Even on the road, Samford is going to have no issue getting the job done here. Wofford’s defense has been a major issue heading into this game and now they have to face off against a Samford offense that has a ton of confidence. Look for Samford to have no issue running up the score, and Wofford won’t be keeping up. This game is going to get out of control early. Back Samford against the spread.
