College Basketball Betting Trends
East Tennessee State
The Buccaneers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall. East Tennessee State is 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings.
The Terriers are 5-0 ATS in their last five meetings. Wofford is 5-1 ATS in its last six neutral site games.
I'd imagine Wofford is a 6.5 or 7-point favorite in this one, which will make for an interesting look at this contest. The Terriers had their way with ETSU at home to the tune of 79-62, but on the road in the more recent meeting they narrowly beat the Buccaneers 78-76 in overtime. The Buccaneers have only lost by more than seven points three times this year and are quality on both ends of the court, so I think we're in for a tight battle here. Go with the underdogs to cover.
