This is a great spot and matchup for the 49ers of Charlotte. Charlotte has an underrated home-court advantage and has only lost one home game (and one semi-home game) this season and that was a close one vs. Davidson. USF has the ranking next to its name but the fact of the matter is, these teams are similar in talent and competitiveness. Because of USF's big win streak and AP Ranking, the Bulls are severely overvalued here. Charlotte is playing with revenge after losing the first matchup of the season series in Tampa. The thing I really like about Charlotte in this one is the fact that the 49ers defend the perimeter very well, top 30 nationally. South Florida takes and makes a ton of threes and relies on the long-range jumper offensively. If those shots aren't falling or aren't available at the same rate the Bulls are used to, I think the offense will look uncomfortable, especially on the road. I will lay the points with Charlotte here. 

Ron’s Pick Charlotte 49ers: -3.5 -110
