#800 FURMAN (-10′) over Western Carolina at 4 PM EST
The Paladins apply to a solid 64-37 ATS postseason system and they’ll have no trouble smashing the Catamounts in the semifinals of the Southern Conference Tournament on Sunday afternoon. WCU enters this battle off a 69-57 win over ETSU in the quarterfinals and head coach Justin Gray and his troops will be in trouble in this spot.

A quick glance at the History Book shows that Furman has owned this series lately inking a strong 16-2 SU and 12-6 ATS record in the last 18 meetings. Since suffering a 79-67 loss to Western Carolina on December 31st, 2022, the Paladins went on a tear inking a phenomenal 15-2 SU and 13-4 ATS tally in their last 17 games. Finally, when priced as a double-digit favorite, head coach Bob Richey and his boys own a lucrative 25-16 ATS mark in their last 41 tries.

The Catamounts are locked into a poor wagering spot as well. When priced as an underdog and now fighting a foe that enters with confidence off a straight up win, Western Carolina holds a soft 11-42 SU and 21-32 ATS tally in its last 53 battles. In this situation hitting the hardwood with momentum off two or more straight up wins, WCU falls to a disturbing 0-18 SU and 3-15 ATS. Lastly, when entering off a pair of pointspread victories, Coach Gray and his men own a rough 5-15 SU and 4-14 ATS record.

The Paladins used a suffocating full court press that sparked a 32-6 run in their victory over the Bears. Without question, Coach Richey will crank up the pressure once again with a ticket to the conference championship game on the line. Take Furman. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
