College Basketball: Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 6:00 pm (TD Arena)
The Line: College of Charleston Cougars -4.5 -- Over/Under: 140.5
The Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens and the College of Charleston Cougars meet in college basketball action from TD Arena on Thursday.
Delaware comes in here at 20-9 so far. Over the last three games, Delaware is just 1-2, with a win over Northeastern sandwiched between losses to William & Mary and Hofstra otherwise.
In the loss to Hofstra, Delaware’s Nate Darling led the way with 25 points, four rebounds and four assists. The only other Delaware player in double-digits there was Justyn Mutts with a double-double on 14 points, 13 rebounds and two assists.
Over on the Charleston side, they’re 15-13 so far. Charleston is on a four-game losing streak right now, falling to Elon, Hofstra, Northeastern and UNC-Wilmington during that time.
In the loss to UNCW, Charleston’s only double-digit scorer was Grant Riller with 19 points, five rebounds and two assists. Jaylen Richard was the next-closest on the team there with seven points, two assists and one rebound.
Charleston is 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-7 ATS in their last eight after an ATS loss. Charleston is 0-4 ATS in their last four overall and the under is 4-1 in the last five overall.
Meanwhile, Delaware is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Thursday games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games. The over is 19-6-1 in Delaware’s last 26 overall and 5-1 in their last six road games.
Delaware normally scores pretty well, which makes their 62 points against Hofstra in their last outing stick out even more. Prior to that, Delaware had hit 70 points or more in nine straight games, even hitting 80 or more four times in that stretch.
That said, Charleston hasn’t scored very well lately either, with 68 or fewer in each of their last five games which helps explain the losing streak. I can’t trust Charleston for much right now, so I like Delaware to bounce back here and cover.
