It is hard to say just how good Furman is, but nobody has been them yet and that looks like to continue for another week.
SC Upstate has just a couple of wins on the season and the only reason to pay attention here is to see if Furman keeps it together.
Is Furman going to go undefeated this season. Maybe, it looks like the only game they might be favoured in is a trip to LSU next week. .
In amassing their current record they have played good defense and efficient offense. You put those two together and you can have great results. But they have also been lucky – 3 OT winners.
Don’t feel bad for not knowing who Jeremy Lyons is. He is the Paladins leading scorer and he averages 20ppg but last year he averaged only 8. It is mostly opportunity too, he is getting his shots up.
He and forward Matt Rafferty are a potent duo. Rafferty is a senior who has upped his production to 18ppg and 9rpg. He is tough to keep off the board, just ask Villanova.
South Carolina Upstate Spartans
The Spartans have not been showing much so far this season. Just a couple of wins but at least one was on the road.
Malik Moore is a wiry senior who leads the team in scoring at 16ppg. His game has improved each season but his 32 points was not enough in their last game.
Deion Holmes is another senior and the only other double-digit scorer. He is a reliable but unspectacular player. On this team he has to shoot whether he is on or not.
USC Upstate does not have much size so Rafferty could be a problem. One of many likely.

Free Furman Paladins vs. South Carolina Upstate Spartans NCAAB Prediction:
Look for Furman to be a favourite on the road but the line might come late given the profiles of the schools.
My guess might be as high as Furman by about -12. That sounds super chalky but they are ranked right now.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I think you can back the Paladins here. It might not be a team you are familiar with but at the same time they are not a fluke.
