There is one pick today.
Take College of Charleston +3 spread against NC Wilmington for 3% of the bankroll.
The UNC Wilmington Seahawks and Charleston Cougars meet tonight in the CAA Finals to decide who will be crowned conference champions. It's not too often you see the top two teams in the conference square off in the finals, but that is exactly what we have here tonight. Although Wilmington is the top seed and supposedly the 'team to beat' it will be College of Charleston who actually owns the home court advantage in this contest.
These two teams have both had great seasons, however, stylistically these teams couldn't be more different. The Seahawks have gotten things done behind a spectacular offense this season that is averaging 85.4 points per game on the season. Meanwhile, the Charleston Cougars has been somewhat inconsistent on the offensive side of the ball but sport one of the very best defenses in the country, holding teams to just 63.7 points per game and 41% shooting from the field. This is the classic offense vs defense matchup in what should be a highly entertaining game.
These two teams are no strangers to each other and have split the series meeting this year with each team winning on the other's floor. Over the past 4 meetings, the average margin of victory has been just 3 points, with UNC Wilmington owning a 3-1 advantage. We believe that Charleston actually holds an advantage in this contest due to their stellar defense. All of UNC's losses this season have come against team's who had strong defensive efforts, holding them to 41% shooting or less from the floor; Charleston certainly has that capability. With this being the championship game and in what should be a lower scoring contest, we believe the points hold a ton of value and are likely to come into play tonight.
