The Davidson Wildcats have quietly won seven straight games, with all seven wins by at least nine points. They'll look to extend that streak to eight in their biggest test of the season against the Alabama Crimson Tide in Birmingham.

(stats as of Monday morning)

The Wildcats run has been powered by outside shooting, ranking fourth in the country in 3-point shooting percentage at 41.6 percent, a mark that is the same both at home and on the road.

The Crimson Tide are shooting just 31.5 percent from 3-point range at home. Alabama is also just 141st in the country this season in points allowed on a per-possession basis on defense.

Alabama’s free throw shooting is also a concern as they are making just 66.7 percent of their free throws this season, which is 241st among Division I teams. Davidson, meanwhile, is converting on 76 percent of their free throw attempts overall and 81.7 percent of them on the road, which is the 14th-best percentage away from home.

The Wildcats have covered nine of their 10 games this season and their offense, which is 15th in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis, should give Alabama a scare they may not be expecting.

Pick: Davidson + 8.5
