The Robert Morris Colonials will travel to Calihan Hall to take on the Detroit Mercy Titans this Thursday night in the first round of the Horizon League Championship.

The Colonials are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games, however, are jus t1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Titans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games.

Robert Morris is coming off back-to-back losses to Detroit this past weekend and it is hard to imagine the Colonials having better success on the road in this one, especially after losing their top scorer in AJ Bramah, who decided to transfer out of the program late in the season. Detroit has been outstanding at home as of late, and between the fact that they arguably have the best offensive player in the Horizon in Antoine Davis and that their offense should have plenty of success against the Colonials 320th ranked scoring defense, I’m taking Detroit to cover this large home spread. Good Luck!
