The Towson Tigers and the Ohio State Buckeyes meet in college basketball action from Value City Arena on Wednesday night.

The Towson Tigers will look to add to their current three-game win streak after a 73-58 win over Kent State last time out. Cameron Holden leads the Tigers in scoring and rebounding by averaging a double-double per game with 16 PPG and 10.4 RPG in addition to 3.3 APG while Nicolas Timberlake has 13.6 PPG with 5.2 RPG and Terry Nolan Jr. has 12.9 PPg with a team-high 3.4 APG to make up the trio of Tigers averaging double figures in scoring for Towson so far this season. As a team, Towson is averaging 71.1 PPG on 43.5% shooting from the field, 31.7% from three and 69.2% from the foul line while allowing 62.6 PPG on 38.4% shooting from the field and 29.9% from three this season.

The Ohio State Buckeyes will try to build on a 76-64 win over Penn State last time out. E.J. Liddell leads the Buckeyes in scoring and rebounding with 20.4 PPG and 7 RPG while Zed Key has 10 PPg with 4.5 RPG to make up the pair of double-digit scorers for Ohio State so far this season. Kyle Young has 9.6 PPG with 6.3 RPG and Jamari Wheeler has a team-high 4.2 APG as well this season. As a team, Ohio State is averaging 74.9 PPG on 48.1% shooting from the field, 38.7% from three and 71% from the foul line while allowing 68.3 PPG on 40.3% shooting from the field and 30.8% from three this season.

Towson is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win. Ohio State is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 gaes following a win and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall.

This points with Towson are tempting as the Tigers have been a cover machine for much of the season, but on the other hand, Ohio State hasn’t let the win over Duke get to their heads as it’s been business as usual since. I think one thing that’s for sure here is that defense will be an emphasis and I think this ends up being a first to 70 wins kinda of game if we even get that high. Give me the under here.
