TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23RD
#708 TOWSON (-9) over James Madison at 7 PM EST
Playing awfully well on a 4-0 SU and 2-1-1 ATS run, Towson will be primed and ready on Senior Night for this revenge game. Last year, the Tigers posted an 0-2 SU and ATS mark in this series and that fact isn’t sitting too well with head coach Pat Skerry. JMU limps into this CAA battle on a dismal 4-9 SU and 5-8 ATS run in its last 13 games, and they’ll be in serious trouble inside SECU Arena.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, Towson has been a real juggernaut this season posting a strong 20-6 SU and 17-7-2 ATS record in its last 26 games. In this run fighting a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .550 or better, the Tigers jump to a sensational 11-3 SU and 12-1-1 ATS. Equally impressive, when locked into a revenge mode and hitting the hardwood with steam off a straight up win, Coach Skerry’s boys hold an outstanding 60-32-3 ATS mark including a powerful 25-10-1 ATS provided they were on the road in their last game.
This isn’t the best wagering spot for the Dukes either. For starters, as a conference guest, James Madison has struggled a touch inking a woeful 9-20 SU and 11-17-1 ATS record in its last 29 games. In this situation priced as an underdog of +8.5 or more, head coach Mark Byington’s boys drop to a woeful 1-6 SU and ATS. Even worse, when facing a foe that busts in with steam off two or more straight up wins, JMU sports a stiff 17-51 SU and 21-37-3 ATS tally including a woeful 6-22 SU and 6-18-2 ATS provided the Dukes are fighting with four or more days of rest.
Resting just a half-game out of the top spot in the CAA and with the conference tournament scheduled for March 5th to March 8th, the Tigers need this last home game victory in order to stay in the hunt. Take Towson. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
