Result: Loss

10* Over Furman/Mercer (7:30 ET): Furman is a team that should be taken pretty seriously in the SoCon this year as its only non-conference losses came to Alabama, USF and Auburn, all of which were "true" road games. It'll be interesting to see whether or not the Paladians can match up w/ SoCon favorite East Tenn State (who just upset LSU earlier this week). Most feel the SoCon is going to be a very competitive three-team race between those two and UNC Greensboro, all of whom are ranked inside the top 80 of my own personal power rankings.

Furman opens conference play w/ a road game against Mercer. Mercer joined the SoCon in 2014 (formerly in the A-Sun), right after its stunning 1st round upset of Duke in the NCAA Tournament. Since then, it's been a bit of a struggle for the Bears in their new conference. Last year, they finished just 11-20 SU and were 6-12 in conference play, their worst record since joining the SoCon. They have really struggled against Furman, going 1-10 ATS including 0-5 here at home. The L3 seasons have seen them lose all five meetings to the Paladians.

So it's no surprise that Furman comes in favored for this SoCon opener. But the total is what has my attention as Mercer has gone Under in six straight games. They've really struggled offensively in the L5, averaging just 63.4 PPG on 40.1% shooting. But only one of those five games was here at home. Furman can definitely score as is evident by the fact they are averaging nearly 80 PPG for the season. With the exception of two games, they've scored at least 70 in every game this year. With them doing much of the "heavy lifting," look for this game to go Over the total. 10* Over Furman/Mercer
