The Wright State Raiders have been better on both sides of the floor this season and their defensive effort should give a Detroit team issues considering they've had issues scoring as it is. The Detroit Mercy Titans have lost three of their first four games, and while their schedule hasn't been easy, they're not going to see success until the ball starts going through the hoop. I'll eat the chalk with the Raiders.
