What to Know

The Furman Paladins are 1-3 against the Winthrop Eagles since November of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Tuesday. They will face off against one another at 7 p.m. ET at Winthrop Coliseum. The Paladins will be strutting in after a win while Winthrop will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The College of Charleston Cougars typically have all the answers at home, but this past Friday Furman proved too difficult a challenge. Furman came out on top in a nail-biter against College of Charleston, sneaking past 91-88.

Meanwhile, Winthrop came up short against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers this past Saturday, falling 74-64.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Furman is expected to win a tight contest. Now might not be the best time to take the Paladins against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past four consecutive games.

Furman is now 6-2 while Winthrop sits at 4-4. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Furman ranks 10th in college basketball when it comes to points per game, with 85.8 on average.
