The Drexel Dragons need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Drexel Dragons are averaging 70 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 68.3 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Camren Wynter is averaging 15.6 points and 5.3 assists while James Butler is averaging 12.5 points and 12 rebounds.

The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Dragons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games as a home underdog and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The under is 7-2 in Tigers last 9 road games. The under is 4-1 in Dragons last 5 home games. The home team is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Towson Tigers are playing the better basketball entering this contest, and their 13-10 ATS record indicates they're the better team on both sides of the fence. However, the Drexel Dragons are far from pushovers at home where they've won five straight and win by an average of 9.5 points on the season. The home team has also won seven of the last 10 meetings between Towson and Drexel. In a toss up contest, I'll lean toward Drexel and the free point.
