The North Texas Mean Green and Towson Tigers meet Sunday in college basketball action at the TD Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
North Texas Mean Green Betting Preview
The North Texas Mean Green look to rebound from back to back losses. The North Texas Mean Green are coming off a Friday loss to LSU. The North Texas Mean Green are averaging 68 points on 41.4 percent shooting and allowing 65 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Aaron Scott is averaging 15.3 points and 5.5 rebounds, while Jason Edwards is averaging 13.8 points and 0.8 assists. Rubin Jones is the third double-digit scorer and CJ Noland is dishing 1.3 assists. The North Texas Mean Green are shooting 39.8 percent from beyond the arc and 84.1 percent from the free throw line. The North Texas Mean Green are allowing 30.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game.
Towson Tigers Betting Preview
The Towson Tigers also hope to bounce back from back to back losses. The Towson Tigers lost on Friday to Wake Forest. The Towson Tigers are averaging 60.6 points on 40.3 percent shooting and allowing 64.4 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Tyler Tejada is averaging 12.4 points and 4 rebounds, while Charles Thompson is averaging 10.6 points and 1.2 assists. Christian May is dishing 0.4 assists and Messiah Jones is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Towson Tigers are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 64.7 percent from the free throw line. The Towson Tigers are allowing 38.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game.
The Towson Tigers have yet to get going offensively, and that scares me for an early start where teams can come out sluggish. The North Texas Mean Green have also been on the end of some tough, tight losses, mainly against LSU and St. John's. A bounce here or a bounce there, North Texas is sitting a lot prettier. Still, North Texas is making progress and showing potential. I'll lay the points with the Mean Green.
