Appalachian State Basketball: Appalachian @ Wofford 1/19/2012
Wofford is a 8.5 point favorite at home and should be. Wofford has covered in every home Southern Conference game this season against a variety of opponents and spreads. Most recently, the Terriers covered a big 9.5 point spread against Georgia Southern with a 88-63 win. The Terriers were 2 point home dogs to College of Charleston on January 5th, and scored another monster 75-58 win. Back in December, Wofford covered a 1o point spread over The Citadel with a 82-63 win and eeked out a 6.5 point home dog cover over Davidson in a 69-72 loss. The Davidson game marks the only time this year Wofford has lost a game and covered the spread. Appalachian has been good against the spread this year as a team with a decent 8-4 record that includes four consecutive covers. Appalachian has not lost two straight games in over a month and seems to be playing well. I will take the Mountaineers with the points, but consider a straight up win to be an upset.
