Who Oddsmakers Like: Auburn. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Tigers are the favorite in this game, as they are getting odds of -9.5 points against Charleston. The spread opened with Auburn as a 10-point favorite and it climbed to 11 points before falling back. The over/under total sits at 148 points after it opened at 148.5 points.

Who Public Bettors Like: Charleston. As of Friday afternoon, the Cougars are getting 69 percent of the wagers for this contest as a big underdog against Auburn.

Injury Report: While Charleston doesn’t have anyone listed on the injury report for this game, Auburn continues to be without Anfernee McLemore, who will miss the tournament due to his ankle injury he suffered a month ago. McLemore was averaging 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game before his injury.

Bet on College Basketball for Friday, March 16, 2018

Who We Like: Auburn has been very shaky since the injury to McLemore. They are 2-4 straight up since he went down and 1-5 against the spread. Charleston has won nine of its last 10, with the lone loss coming in overtime. Their offense is putting up 83 points per game over their last five and that should give the Cougars a fighting chance in this game. Auburn’s offense has taken a dip with McLemore out, so I can’t see Auburn putting up a number that Charleston just can’t keep up with. I will take the points in this game as Charleston pushes for the outright upset.
