The Bulldogs and Winthrop will face off in a Big South battle at 6:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Kimmel Arena. UNC-Asheville is out to keep their ten-game home win streak alive.
UNC-Asheville was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 76-70 to the South Carolina Upstate Spartans.
Meanwhile, Winthrop was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 69-66 to the Radford Highlanders.
UNC-Asheville is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while the Eagles have struggled against the spread on the road.
