Terriers take down Paladins
Wofford earned a 72-64 road victory Saturday at Furman to improve to 24-4 overall and 15-0 in the Southern Conference. The Terriers led 39-28 at halftime en route to the win. Wofford shot 28-of-60 from the floor, 9-of-30 from 3-point range and 7-of-8 at the free throw line. Fletcher Magee paced the Terriers with 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting including 5-of-13 from 3-point distance. He also registered four rebounds and three assists.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Terriers are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Wofford is 6-1 ATS in its last seven Southern Conference games.
The Mocs are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 home games. Chattanooga is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five games following an ATS win.
Wofford beat a much, much better Furman team that was ranked earlier in the season by eight on the road over the weekend so I can't imagine Chattanooga putting up much of a fight. The previous three wins by the Terriers had all been by double digits. With the Mocs struggling to cover spreads at home, I can't imagine their homecourt advantage improves much here. Take Wofford to extend its winning streak to 16 games and cover the spread in the process.
