A 10-day layoff has slowed Manhattan's momentum, giving a hungry Towson team an opportunity to pick up its first win of the season tonight. Manhattan is 3-14 ATS in its last 17 games when playing with 7 or more days' rest. Towson State played a game last week so it won't be showing as much rust. It is 17-5 ATS in its last 22 games when playing with 5 or 6 days' rest.
The Jaspers have been a poor investment when laying points, going 18-39-1 ATS in their last 58 games as a favorite. They are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite.
Also, plays on underdogs of 10 to 19.5 points after 8 or more consecutive losses, playing only their 2nd game in 8 days, are an impressive 90-47 ATS since 1997. These teams have been underdogs of 13.7 points on average but have lost by just 11.7 points on average.
This is a good spot for the Tigers. Look for them to keep this one close.
