Thursday college basketball action pits the Cleveland State Vikings against the Detroit Titans.

The Cleveland State Vikings snapped an eight game slide with a 72-62 win against Youngstown State on Saturday for their first Horizon League victory.

Cleveland State took command with a 17 point advantage after 20 minutes and easily held the lead behind a 45.6%-30.6% shooting edge.

Rashad Williams carried the Vikings attack with 20 points and three yanks followed by Tyree Appleby with 16 points, four boards and eight helpers.

Jaalam Hill gave Cleveland State 16 points and six boards while Seth Miller and Kasheem Thomas chipped in with six and five points.

The Detroit Titans are in the midst of a three game skid after an 80-65 defeat to Indiana-Purdue as an eight point road dog on Saturday.

Detroit trailed by nine points at the intermission but couldn’t cut in to their deficit despite 51% from the floor because of 22 turnovers.

Willy Isiani topped the Titans offense with 20 points with Josh McFolley adding another 19 points, three yanks and five helpers.

Harrison Curry gave Detroit nine points and seven rebounds followed Darrell Riley Jr. with seven points and seven helpers.

Cleveland State Vikings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and  are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and  are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. Horizon League. Detroit Titans are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games and  are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall. Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit Mercy and Cleveland State Vikings are 5-12-1 ATS in the last 18 meetings in Detroit Mercy.

Assuming Antoine Davis is playing I think Detroit gets back in the win column on their home floor...

Pick:
Detroit -4.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
