#686 FURMAN (-9) over VMI at 7 PM EST
With a little steam off back-to-back SU and ATS wins over Western Carolina and Wofford, Furman will be primed and ready for this revenge game. Back on New Year’s Day, the Paladins (-4) visited Cameron Hall and left with a 76-67 loss in its pocket. Since that blemish, head coach Bob Richey’s boys have inked a nifty 5-1 SU and 5-0-1 ATS mark in their last five games and they need this victory badly in order to keep pace with Chattanooga in the SoCon Standings.

In the role of a favorite, Furman has been at its financial best posting a proud 106-61-3 ATS record in its last 170 lined games. Provided the Paladins are running the court against a foe that busts in without confidence off a straight up loss, this technical situation improves to a rewarding 70-31-1 ATS including a powerful 37-10-1 ATS if their opponent played in the comforts of home last. With those three parameters live and Furman taking the floor off a blowout victory of nine points or more, this team trend explodes to a nearly perfect 15-1-1 ATS.

When these two teams hooked up on January 1st, VMI shot 51 percent from the floor and 47 percent from behind the arc. That’s not going to happen at Timmons Arena. Respect is certainly given to a Keydets squad that holds a stunning 24-4-1 ATS mark when facing a foe that enters off a pointspread win. However, as a guest facing an opponent that was on the road in their last game, VMI owns a stiff 7-37 SU and 14-24-2 ATS record. Also, on the road going into revenge, the Keydets hold a woeful 5-16 SU and 6-10-1 ATS mark in their last 21 tries.

When playing with same season single revenge, the Paladins have posted a proud 15-6 ATS tally in their last 21 battles including 12-3 ATS if they are playing in the comforts of home. Coach Richey’s boys will find their range from the cheap seats in this rematch and have no trouble extending the margin here. Take Furman. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
