The Detroit Mercy Titans have been awful on the defensive end this season, allowing 81 or more points in eight straight games, and it's tough to back a team that gives up buckets with ease. This is a game where the Milwaukee Panthers should be able to get comfortable on the offensive end and get a much needed home victory. I'll take the Panthers by double digits, even though it's more of a fade from the Titans.
