Detroit Mercy Titans vs. Wyoming Cowboys

Where: Arena-Auditorium, Laramie, WY

When: Tuesday, November 19, 9:00 PM. ET.

The Wyoming Cowboys will be trying to snap their three-game losing streak when they take on the Detroit Mercy Titans on Tuesday night.

Titans Looking For First Win Of The Year

The Titans are off to a bad start this season, but their start isn’t as bad as their record indicates because their first two games came on the road against NC State and Clemson, two teams they didn’t really have a chance against.

With one more road game before they head home for their next two games, the Titans will be trying to pick up their first win of the year on Tuesday night.

Detroit Mercy has struggled defensively, giving up 85.5 points per game. Even though the games came against teams that had more depth than they do, the Titans still have to play better defense if they want to make it to the postseason this year.

The Titans also have some work to do on offense, with the team averaging 65 points per game. They are shooting 36 percent from the field and 24 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Titans scored 65 points against the Tigers, led by Antoine Davis, who finished the game with 26 points, three rebounds, six assists, and four steals. Justin Miller finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds, while Chris Brandon added 12 points and eight rebounds.

The Titans have to do a better job shooting the ball to give themselves a chance to pick up their first win of the year.

Cowboys Need To Fix Offensive Issues

The Cowboys would be one of the most difficult teams to beat if they were half as good offensively as they are on the defensive end, but that isn’t likely to happen any time soon. The team has lost three consecutive games and is in danger of losing its fourth straight game because of its shooting problems.

Wyoming is averaging 50.5 points per game thanks to the team shooting 38 percent from the field and 22 percent from three-point range. After scoring 53 points or less in each of its first three games, Wyoming scored a season-high 63 points in its last game and will be hoping to build on that on Tuesday night.

Hunter Maldonado led the way for the Cowboys in their last game, finishing with 18 points, five rebounds, and two assists, while A.J. Banks added 10 points, two assists, and two steals for the Cowboys, who finished with two players scoring in double figures.

The Cowboys have played well on the defensive end, holding opponents to 62.3 points per game. They gave up a season-high 83 points in their last game and will need a better performance on Tuesday if they want to beat the Titans.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


Even though they haven’t won a game this season, the Titans are the pick here because the Cowboys have been dreadful offensively and will have a hard time keeping up with the Titans, who have played well against the spread when playing teams with losing home records. Wyoming is averaging 50.5 points per game and hasn’t scored more than 63 points in a game this season. For their part, the Titans are averaging 65 points per game this season, but the numbers are skewed because their first two games of the season were on the road against ACC teams, which means they should be able to score well over 70 points against the Cowboys. On the defensive end, the Titans are giving up 85.5 points per game, which also isn’t reflective of how good they are considering the teams they have played. The bottom line here is that the Cowboys’ defense will keep them in this game, but the Titans will pull away in the second half because the Cowboys aren’t good enough offensively.

Prediction: Detroit Mercy Titans
