The Delaware Blue Hens and Charleston Cougars meet Saturday in college basketball action at the TD Arena.

The Delaware Blue Hens look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Delaware Blue Hens are averaging 73.5 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 71.1 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Eric Carter is averaging 17.8 points and 2.5 assists while Ryan Allen is averaging 13.7 points and 2.3 rebounds. Ithiel Horton is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Anderson is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Delaware Blue Hens are shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Delaware Blue Hens are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35 rebounds per game. The Delaware Blue Hens have won six of their last eight road games.

The Charleston Cougars look for a victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Charleston Cougars are averaging 73.5 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 67.4 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Grant Riller is averaging 22.3 points and 4.4 assists while Jarrell Brantley is averaging 19.9 points and 8.1 rebounds. Brevin Galloway is grabbing 2.9 rebounds and Zep Jasper is dishing 1.3 assists. The Charleston Cougars are shooting 31.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line. The Charleston Cougars are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Charleston Cougars have won six of their last seven home games.

The Blue Hens are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Cougars are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Blue Hens are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Charleston and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over is 5-0 in Cougars last 5 home games. The over is 7-3 in Cougars last 10 overall.

The Delaware Blue Hens are riding a four-game winning streak and have had a ton of success on the road this season. Sure, you can laugh at some of the opponents Delaware has played on the road, but road wins are road wins and the Blue Hens did take Maryland down to the wire in their season opener. The Charleston Cougars are the better team and have an offense that can get going, especially at home where they're averaging 76.2 points. However, Delaware has proven it puts up a fight on the road and is playing well overall right now. I'll take a stab with the points.

Pick:
Delaware +10.5
