I don't like backing teams that are in a major slump, and it doesn't get much worse than the way the Detroit Mercy Titans are playing right now. The Green Bay Phoenix have had struggles of their own, but they've played a much tougher schedule and have done a decent job of beating up on the teams they're supposed to beat. Detroit Mercy is awful defensively as well. Give me the home team, and I'll lay the small chalk.
