The Towson Tigers are clearly the better team here, and their defense is going to give an Elon offense that already has issues a world of fits. Towson has also been great against the number this season. The Elon Phoenix continue to pile up the losses, and they’re not covering numbers despite being underdogs a lot. Give me Towson and the small chalk.
