Towson defeated Delaware on the road Monday which was a big boost to a team that is still having issues at point guard, where senior Terry Nolan (10.1ppg, 4.2apg) played in just seven minutes and went scoreless. Nolan has played in 17 of Towson’s 21 games and is second in steals with 26.

4* Free Delaware Blue Hens vs. Towson Tigers CBB Betting Pick: Delaware ATS
This is a close game on paper as these teams match up very evenly. They are conference foes that just played each other on Monday in a tight game.
Delaware had one of their worst shooting performance of the season as they shot just 5/26 from beyond the arc. The missed deep spots hurt the Blue Hens chances in the second half significantly as their slim deficit grew to an eventual 7 point loss.
Towson is the favorite once again and they’ve done a nice job covering the spread this season but I see a potential revenge game in the works for Delaware.
Head Coach Martin Ingelsby will have his group recharged and ready to correct the mistakes they made on Monday.
I like the Blue Hens to cover this small line and potentially pull an upset on the Tiger’s court.
