Against The Spread Pick
A Sun Belt Conference match-up that features a pair of bottom feeders just trying to stay competitive, as the Trojans visit HTC Center to face the Chanticleers. Troy has had a terrible season, and with a 2-8 record in their last 10 games, things don’t look bright down the road. Coastal Carolina hasn’t had a good season either, but they have double-digit wins this season. The Trojans are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games, while the Chanticleers are only 2-7 against the spread. Troy easily covered in the first meeting this season winning by 18 points. The Trojans have also won and covered in each of their last two visits to HTC Center. Take Troy to cover eight points on the road.
Over Under Pick
The Chanticleers are averaging points well above what the rest of the Sun Belt nearing 78 points per game. The Trojans are far from that average as they come in around 69 points per game. Troy put up 77 points in the first meeting this season, as they and Coastal Carolina combined for a total of 136 points. Only once in the last three meetings has reached a total above 150 points. So taking an under 153.5-point total is the right choice.
