The Citadel +5 at Samford (118½)

It just seems every time we mention Samford out West there needs to be a disclaimer that it’s SAMFORD and not STANFORD. With that out of the way, this is one of the more intriguing matchups on a slim Monday card. This Southern Conference matchup features a pair of Bulldogs who are a combined 15-2 against the spread in their last 17 board games.

Samford has the home court edge and looking for its fourth straight victory. But

the Alabama Bulldogs have on their record a 13-point loss to College of Charleston, a team The Citadel defeated by 9 in its last outing. Plus these South Carolina Bulldogs have road covers this season against Michigan State and South Carolina. Davidson, the elite team in the league, defeated Samford by 21 and Citadel by 15. Again, Citadel may be underrated in this spot. CITADEL
