The Fightin Blue Hens continue to roll over the competition as they are now 11-0 in conference play. Since the last meeting against Towson, they are averaging 76.6 points and allowing just 66.6 points. They shoot 45.1 percent from the field on the road and average 78.7 points. Senior guard Davon Usher has scored a combined 76 points in his last two games. They are 12-6 ATS overall and a solid 8-2 ATS on the road.
The spread on this game is mighty interesting considering the way Delaware has played over the last month and the way the last meeting went down a couple of weeks ago.
The Blue Hens are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven meetings in Towson and the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings between these two teams.
However, we’re giving the best team in the Colonial League points. A team that has been a covering machine on the road and has covered its last four road games.
There is a chance Towson will get revenge for the earlier meeting, but you’d be insane to pass up the value of getting free points with the better team.
