The Line: College of Charleston Cougars -1 -- Over/Under: 142.5
The Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens and the College of Charleston Cougars meet in college basketball action from Entertainment and Sports Arena on Sunday.
Coming into this CAA Tournament matchup, Delaware is 21-10 overall this season. Over the last four games, Delaware is 2-2, falling to Hofstra and Charleston while otherwise beating Northeastern and UNC Wilmington.
In the win over UNC Wilmington, Delaware’s Kevin Anderson led the team on 14 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Justyn Mutts, Nate Darling and Ryan Allen each posted 13 points there, and the trio combined for eight assists and 13 rebounds as well.
Over on the Charleston side, they’re 17-13 this season. After a four-game losing streak to Elon, Hofstra, Northeastern and UNCW, Charleston has won their last pair over Delaware and Drexel.
In the win over Drexel, Charleston’s leading scorer was Grant Riller with 25 points, three rebounds and three assists. Sam Miller added 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists there, and Jaylen McManus had 13 points, six rebounds and two assists.
Charleston is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six Sunday games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win. The over is 6-1 in Charleston’s last seven after an ATS win and the under is 3-1-1 in their last five Sunday games.
Meanwhile, Delaware is 5-0-1 ATS in their last six Sunday games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven neutral-site games. Delaware is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 after an ATS win and the over is 38-18-2 in their last 58 overall.
This is a pretty interesting matchup, made more so since these teams just played each other back on February 27. Charleston got an 80-71 home victory in that game, but Delaware bounced back pretty well in their final pre-tourney outing with 82 points versus UNC Wilmington.
As for Charleston, their tepid offense during the four-game losing streak seems to be gone now, as they’ve totaled 155 points across their last two outings. This should be a pretty great matchup and a close game, but Charleston still hasn’t totally regained my trust. I’m leaning toward Delaware here.
