The Towson Tigers and the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks meet in college basketball action from the Trask Coliseum on Saturday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Towson is listed as a 1.5-point road favorite with the total for this game set at 133.5 points.
For Towson, Jason Gibson is out for the season with a back injury and Chase Paar is out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury, while UNC-Wilmington comes into this game with a clean bill of health.
Towson’s 79-55 win back on February 17th, 2022, made it six wins in the last seven head-to-head meetings for Towson in this head-to-head matchup with the Seahawks.
Towson is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall. UNC-Wilmington is 36-17-2 ATS in their last 55 games overall and 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m leaning towards UNC-Wilmington here. There’s really not much here for me to see why Towson would be favored on the road as UNCW is 11-2 at home this season and the only thing Towson has to play for is the head-to-head tiebreak to own that over Wilmington and maybe get a better seed in the conference tournament but outside of that, there’s not much and it’s not like Towson’s been spectacular on the road, as they’ve lost four straight road games. I think the wrong team’s favored here. Give me UNC-Wilmington here.
