What to Know

After a two-game homestand, the South Carolina Upstate Spartans will be on the road.

Meanwhile, Charleston Southern received a tough blow on Wednesday as they fell 85-66 to the UNC-Asheville Bulldogs.

South Carolina Upstate is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 9-3-1 ATS in away games but only 14-8-1 all in all.

The Spartans had enough points to win and then some against the Buccaneers in the teams' previous meeting in January, taking their contest 70-57. The rematch might be a little tougher for South Carolina Upstate since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
