The Towson Tigers (18-12, CONF 11-6) and Northeastern Huskies (15-14, CONF 9-8) face off in a Colonial Athletic Showdown at Matthews Arena. Northeastern beat Towson 61-45 earlier this season.
Towson has played some solid basketball this season and coming into this game they have won five of the last six games. In three of the last four games Towson has also covered the spread. In Towson’s last game they were seven point underdogs on the road but the offense was strong putting up 76 points and that led to a victory.
Over the last five games Towson is averaging 70 points per game while giving up 62.9 points. Towson is led by guard Brian Fobbs who is averaging 16.1 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field. Fobbs is also shooting 33 percent from the field.
In Towson’s last game it was Fobbs who put up 21 points and made three of his four shots from deep.
Northeastern is hoping they are getting hot at the right time, and coming into this game they have won four of the last five games. The one loss for Northeastern wasn’t a pretty one scoring only 4 8 points against Delaware.
At home this season Northeastern has a 7-5 record and the offense has been good putting up 73.2 points per game. In Northeastern’s last game they used a balanced attack with four players finishing in double figures.
If Northeastern can use a balanced attack in this game, they should be in good shape at the end of this game.
Northeastern is 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 home games. The under is 9-3 in Towson’s last 12 road games. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between Towson and Northeastern in Northeastern. The under is 9-2 in Towson’s last 11 games played on Sunday.
When these two squads face off they are usually high scoring games and it should be no different in this game. Look Northeastern to have plenty of success scoring and Towson to score to keep up. All the scoring will result in the over cashing with ease.
