Detroit Titans (7-19; 10-13-1 ATS; 11-13 O/U) vs. Cleveland State Vikings (7-20; 12-12 ATS; 12-12 O/U)

The Cleveland State Vikings will aim for their second straight win when they host the Detroit Titans in Horizon League action Tuesday night from the Wolstein Center. The Titans dropped an 87-78 decision to Oakland in their latest action, and the Vikings recorded an 87-78 road win against UIC on Saturday. Detroit notched an 85-84 home win against Cleveland State last month.

Detroit’s Defense Struggles Again in 10th Conference Loss

The Detroit Titans surrendered 49 points in the second half in their 87-78 road loss to Oakland on Friday to drop their conference record to 3-10. The Titans only shot 43.5% from the field, while Oakland was able to post a 48% clip. Titans’ top scorer Kameron Chatman was outstanding in the loss, sinking 23 points on 9 for 19 shooting and added five boards. The junior guard is playing well, scoring at least 20 points in four out of his last six games, and is now posting an average of 17.8 points and 8.7 boards per game. Corey Allen added 11 points on a 4 for 9 shooting performance in Saturday’s loss. The sophomore guard is in a bit of a rut, scoring 11 or fewer points in three straight games, and is down to 15.6 points on 44.8% shooting.

The Titans have now dropped six out of their last seven games as their defense continues to struggle. They do have some offensive talent but have been inconsistent, and are ranked down at 311th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Detroit has lost all six conference road games, and they are scoring an average of 78.3 points per game, ranking them 171st overall. They are conceding an average of 85.3 points, placing them down at 347th in the country.

Vikings Find Shooting Touch in Win Against UIC

The Cleveland State Vikings recorded their first conference road win of the season in their 86-78 victory against UIC on Saturday to bring their Horizon League record to 4-10. The Vikings converted on 47.5% of their field goals and limited UIC to 40% shooting. Tyree Appleby came up huge in the victory, sinking 25 points along with nine assists. The freshman guard is playing well, scoring at least 13 points in four straight games, and is up to 11.7 points on 43.8% shooting. Vikings’ leading scorer Kenny Carpenter chipped in with an 11-point effort along with seven rebounds in Saturday’s win. The senior guard is having a strong season, sporting a 47.5% field goal percentage, and is posting an average of 12.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

The Vikings own a 2-2 record in their last four games, however overall they are having a rough season on both offense and defense. They possess a 3-4 home record in Horizon League play and are placed down at 320th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Cleveland State is scoring an average of 68 points per game, ranking them 297th overall. They are allowing an average of 75 points, positioning them 252nd overall.

Trends:

The Detroit Titans are:

  • 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
  • 9-20-1 ATS in their last 31 Wednesday games.

The Cleveland State Vikings are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games.

I am taking Cleveland State in this contest. Detroit continues to struggle defensively, and they have not been productive in the offense end, averaging only 67.4 points in their last seven games. Detroit has yet to win on the road in Horizon League play, and they have allowed over 80 points in five of their six conference road games. Furthermore, Cleveland State is riding some momentum as they just scored 86 points in their 86-78 road win against UIC in their latest action, and I like them on their home court against a struggling Detroit team.
