UMass handles their business at home against Coastal Carolina.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UMass -3.5
Coastal Carolina’s ATS record on the road is impressive, but they are about to face a UMass offense that ranks 9th in the country at scoring points at home.
The Chanticleers may have gone 3-3 ATS thus far, but they haven’t covered in their last two contests, so I feel comfortable backing the better offense and the small number.
