Result: Win
10* Towson (9:30 ET): This game is part of the Las Vegas Invitational, which is a four-team tournament involving UAB, New Mexico, San Francisco and Towson. Not exactly the most compelling field, but we do have an undefeated San Francisco team that’s 6-0 SU. The Dons have been quite active thus far, but despite their perfect SU record, they are just 2-4 ATS with two wins coming by five points or less. This will be the first time they’ve left home this season and I’m going to take the points in what should be a challenging game for them.

Towson comes in with a 3-2 SU record, but they are 4-1 ATS. Both SU losses were by single digits. One was to Monmouth, which was a surprise as the Tigers were 3.5 point home favorites for that game. The other was at Pittsburgh, a more impressive showing as they covered as six-point underdogs. After losing to Pitt 63-59, Towson quickly rebounded by shooting 51% in a 76-61 win over Penn two nights ago. That loss to Pitt is the only game where the Tigers didn’t top 70 points.

These teams met last year on Thanksgiving Day with USF emerging victorious 79-68 at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. I’m looking for a closer battle this year. Both teams have done an exceptionally good job at defending the three-point line thus far. The thing is, I expect Towson to shoot better from distance in this game. That may sound strange considering they are just 27.5% from behind the arc through five games. But that percentage is bound to improve. They were just 4 of 17 vs. Penn (on 3PA) and still scored 76 points. 10* Towson
