The Coppin State Eagles will look for a big road win to get back on track after losing their season opener by a final score of 85-63 at the hands of Wisconsin. Lamar Morgan led Coppin State with 15 points on 4 of 8 from behind the arc while Taiwan Drummond added 11 points on 4 of 8 shooting with 3 triples and a share of the team lead with 5 rebounds ass the only other Eagle to score in double figures in the loss. Cedric Council added 5 points and 5 rebounds with 3 assists as well in the losing effort. As a team, Coppin State is averaging 63 points on 35.6% shooting from the field, 37.9% from behind the 3-point line and 62.5% from the foul line following their first game of the year.
The Dayton Flyers will look to pick up where they left off after starting the season with a 78-70 triumph over North Florida in their last outing. Obi Toppin led the Flyers with 18 points on 8 of 13 shooting along with 10 rebounds for the double-double, while Jordan Davis added 16 points and Trey Landers chipped in 15 points with 10 rebounds for a double-double of his own in the win.

Coppin State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss of 20 or more points while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 road games. Dayton is 2-14 ATS in their last 16 games following a win and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall while the over is 10-4 in their last 14 home games.
I'm not trying to get behind either of these teams, as I just don't know what to expect from Coppin State, but Dayton has also been brutal ATS dating back to last season. All in all in a game like this, I'll have to go with the trends and hope that the Eagles can pull off a backdoor cover so I'll take the points and Coppin State here
