The Towson Tigers will face the Elon Phoenix in college basketball action on Friday. 

Towson comes into this matchup at 4-8 on the season. Thus far, the Tigers have dropped games to Virginia, Pepperdine, FL Atlantic, ND State, Vermont, George Washington, Morgan State and La Salle. 

In the Explorers game, Towson’s Brian Fobbs proved 12 points and one rebound, while Jakign Dottin was the one other Tigers player in double-figures with 12 points, seven rebounds and two assists. 

Over on the Elon side, they’re 4-9 this season. The Phoenix have thus far lost to UNC, ACU, UC Riverdale, Pacific, Boston U, Furman, UNCG, Canisius and UMKC. 

In the Kangaroos game, Elon’s Kris Wooten led the way on 13 points. Nathan Priddy added 11 points, while Frederico Poser chipped in 10 points with five rebounds. 

The Tigers are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Friday games and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 overall. Towson is 4-14 ATS in the last 18 road games and 3-8 ATS in the last 12 following a straight-up loss. 

Meanwhile, the Phoenix are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Friday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 following a straight-up loss. Elon is 1-7 ATS in the last eight home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 overall. 

If there’s good news here, it’s that Elon does have some solid scorers and can put up decent points from time to time. The Phoenix do seem to be giving up a lot the other way, however. 

Towson isn’t exactly the model of consistency either, so this should be a pretty well-matched game. I’m going to take Elon, but otherwise stay away from this game.

Pick:
Elon Phoenix -1
