UNC-Wilmington has kept the bulk of their games close but they just can’t seem to get over the hump and get a conference win.
UNC-Wilmington is 5-15-2 against the spread in their last 22 games, 0-6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games, and 4-12-1 against the spread in their last 17 games following a loss. Towson is 13-6 in their last 19 road games, 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games against a team with a losing home record, and 9-4 against the spread against a team with a winning percentage less than .400. The underdog has covered the point spread in none for the last 10 meetings of these two.
I don’t see Towson having much of a problem here and I like them to cover easily.
