The Towson Tigers just beat Northeastern on the road last week as 5.5-point underdogs, and they've been money against the spread all season where they're 18-11 on the season and 12-5 in non-home games. The Northeastern Huskies are just 13-17 against the spread on the season and can be very shaky on the defensive end at times. The Northeastern Huskies are 8-13 against the spread this season as a favorite. The Towson Tigers have a decent chance to win this game outright based on the numbers and the trends. I'll take my free bucket with Towson.
