The Delaware Blue Hens and Towson Tigers have been known to put up points in squaring off in recent years, as the two teams prepare to close out their regular season series Monday. Let’s take a closer look at the NCAA basketball odds for this Colonial Athletic Association matchup at SECU Arena, with the opening tip scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET.

Streaking

Delaware can clinch at least a share of the CAA regular season title and would lock up the top seed in the conference tournament with a victory in this spot, as it aims to extend its winning streak to 14 games.

The Blue Hens have also won 15 consecutive CAA regular season games dating back to the 2012-13 campaign.  

Over the last two-plus seasons, the program is 6-2 SUATS as road underdogs of 3.5 to 6 points in the NCAA basketball betting odds.

Dominant at home

Towson is 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS over its last six affairs—looking to build off a 85-70 victory over William & Mary as five-point road underdogs last Saturday.

The Tigers have won 17 of their last 18 home games, but they’ve gone 2-2 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 6 points in that situation during the 2013-14 campaign.

Scoring in bunches

College basketball handicappers will certainly be interested in backing the Blue Hens as road underdogs, considering four of five probable starters are averaging in double figures, with senior guard Devon Saddler leading the way at 20.4 points a contest.

Delaware has won its last eight CAA road games, while it has compiled a 15-2 SU record in 17 contests in that situation since Feb. 4, 2012.

Pounding the glass

The Tigers rank 24th nationally with a +6.3 rebounding margin, with senior forward Jerrelle Benimon leading the way in sitting among the top five in the conference in scoring, rebounding, assists, blocks and field goal percentage.

Delaware has allowed 50-plus rebounds three times in its last 76 games played, with all three of those games being dominated on the glass coming against Towson.

Prediction

I’m going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their NCAA basketball picks, as the OVER is 5-0 in the last five overall meetings in the series.

Pick: Over 151.5
