The Detroit Mercy Titans and Milwaukee Panthers meet Thursday in college basketball action at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.

The Detroit Mercy Titans need a win here after losing six of their last seven games. The Detroit Mercy Titans are averaging 71.8 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 77.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Antoine Davis is averaging 26.7 points and 3.3 assists while Josh McFolley is averaging 12.2 points and 2.3 rebounds. Harrison Curry is grabbing 4.8 rebounds and Derrien King is dishing 1.3 assists. The Detroit Mercy Titans are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.3 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Mercy Titans are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.9 rebounds per game. The Detroit Mercy Titans have lost their last four road games.

The Milwaukee Panthers also need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Milwaukee Panthers are averaging 69.4 points on 41.6 percent shooting and allowing 75 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Darius Roy is averaging 15.9 points and four assists while DeAndre Abram is averaging 11.6 points and 7.5 rebounds. Jake Wright is grabbing 1.8 rebounds and Vance Johnson is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Milwaukee Panthers are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.8 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Panthers are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.4 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Panthers have won four of their last six home games.

The Titans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Horizon League and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Panthers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Horizon League, 36-12-3 ATS in their last 51 Thursday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 8-2 in Panthers last 10 Thursday games. The under is 6-1 in Titans last 7 overall.

Both of these teams are piling up the losses at the moment, and Detroit is being outscored by an average of 11.6 points in its last five games while Milwaukee is losing by an average of 8.4 points. The Detroit Mercy Titans did beat Milwaukee earlier this season, but on the road they're shooting under 40 percent from the field and losing by an average of 15.2 points. The Milwaukee Panthers have had their most consistent success at home this season and if there was ever a game to snap this losing streak, it would be against an equally struggling Detroit side. So, I'll lay the bucket in this near toss-up.

Pick:
Milwaukee -1.5
