Kent State

The Golden Flashes are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog. Kent State is 3-7-1 ATS in its last 11 road games.

Ohio

The Bobcats are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games. The favorite is 8-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

Prediction:

The Golden Flashes rolled to an 87-72 home win over Ohio earlier this month, so this is a revenge game for a team that has played very well on its home court as of late. The Bobcats have won four in a row at home and its last defeat at the Convocation Center was a narrow 88-86 loss to a very good Akron squad. Look for Ohio to put together another strong performance tonight to cover the short spread.
