Delaware Blue Hens at Charleston Cougars

NCAAB: Saturday, January 12, 2019, TD Arena, Charleston, South Carolina, 4:00 PM ET

The Colonial Athletic rivals will face at the TD Arena on Saturday as the Delaware Blue Hens are taking on Charleston Cougars looking to continue with their fine form after winning the previous three games, while the hosts are eager to bounce back after their ten-game winning streak was ended by James Madison. Charleston has been a better team in H2H clashes in the past few years as they won each of the previous five duels and are unbeaten in the last four at home.

The Blue Hens beat UNC Wilmington on the road for the fourth straight victory

Delaware responded to a three-game losing run with four consecutive victories over Northeastern, William & Mary, Elon, and most recently, the UNC Wilmington Seahawks. The Blue Hens improved to the 12-6 record and are currently in the 3rd position in the Colonial Athletic Association with two wins behind the leaders Hofstra Pride and one behind the Charleston Cougars.

Freshman guard Ithiel Horton led the Blue Hens in an 82-69 win over the Seahawks with a performance of his young career with 31 points (10-15 FG, 9-13 3PT); Eric Carter posted a double-double of 14 points and game-high 14 rebounds along with game-high four assists, while Ryan Allen contributed with ten points. Delaware created a 10-point lead at halftime and successfully managed to maintain a comfortable lead thanks to an excellent field goal percentage of 51.9%, while they hit even 15 triples in opposite to UNC Wilmington’s eight. The Blue Hens also distributed the ball well, recording twice as many assists than the Seahawks (16-8).

The Blue Hens have the 191st offense in the NCAAB that averages 73.5 points per contest, while their defense allows 71.1 points per game (177th). Delaware’s rebounding is 233rd as they are recording 35.0 boards per game, while they are 189th when it comes to assists per contest with 13.6 dishes a night. Delaware is 89th in field goal percentage as they have 46.8 percent from the floor and 25th from downtown with 39.0 percentage, while they are the 81st with 8.8 three-pointers made per game.

The Cougars fell short to Drexel in the final seconds of the game

Charleston was in a fantastic form of ten consecutive wins before they lost to James Madison and was eager to bounce back at home to Drexel but the Dragons snatched a late win in the dying second of the tilt. The Cougars now dropped to the 13-4 record and are in the second place in the Colonial Athletic Association with a win behind the Hofstra Pride and one ahead of the Delaware Blue Hens.

Junior guard Grant Riller led the Cougars in a 79-78 loss to the Dragons with 18 points, five assists, four rebounds, and a couple of steals; Brevin Galloway added 17 points and two thefts, Nick Harris had 13 points, six boards, and game-high two blocks, Marquise Pointer chipped in with 11 points and game-high eight rebounds, while Jarrell Brantley ended the tilt with ten points and game-high six dimes. Charleston had an 8-point lead at halftime but Troy Harper scored 10 of his 17 points in the last three minutes as Drexel rallied from seven points down, while he hit three free throws with just one second to go to give the Dragons a tight victory.

The Cougars have the 190th offense in the NCAAB that averages 73.5 points per contest, while their defense is allowing 67.4 points per game (81st). Charleston is the 311th rebounding team in college basketball as they are recording 32.9 boards per game, while they are 321st when it comes to assists per contest with 11.1 dishes a night. Charleston is 80th in field goal percentage as they have 47.0 percent from the floor and 301st from downtown with 31.1 percentage, while they are the 304th with 6.3 three-pointers made per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Charleston won six out of the previous ten H2H encounters including the last five, while the Cougars were victorious in the past four meetings at the TD Arena. Delaware is playing well at the moment but the hosts will be highly-motivated to shake off the poor run and bounce back from a 1-point defeat to Drexel with a win in front of their own crowd, and I am backing them to get it. The Cougars have a better defense and I think they will use it to get what they need as I am sure they will not drop the lead late in the game this time around.

Prediction: Charleston Cougars -10 (-110)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I don’t expect to see a bunch of baskets here despite the fact that over is 3-1-1 in the last five H2H meetings. Although Delaware scored 82 points in each of their previous two road games against Northeastern and Wilmington, I don’t think that will be the case here as I am backing Charleston’s defense to set the tempo and limit the visitors in the offense. I am going with under because under is 4-1 in Cougars last five games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600, while under is 5-2 in Cougars previous seven games following an ATS loss.

Prediction: Under 137.5 (-110)
