ETSU-Wofford Predictions

This Southern Conference showdown has been tight over the years with each team winning five games SU out of the last 10 meetings. As an added incentive, first place in the standings is on the line.

Wofford benefits from playing this game at home but this is an excellent opportunity to take the Buccaneers SU on the money line as the slightly better all-around team.

You never know what you are going to get from ETSU on the scoreboard and the Terriers have been a bit lax on defense in their past few outings. This should add up to much higher scoring game than the betting line for the total suggests.

  • Score Prediction: ETSU 74 Wofford 71
  • Best Bets: ETSU +2
  • Best Bets: OVER
