TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH
#605 BALL ST (+) over Kent at 7 PM EST
Last year, the Cardinals (-4.5) hosted the Golden Flashes and dropped a hard-fought 83-80 overtime decision. In a payback mode and, with confidence, off Saturday’s 11-point home win and cover over Ohio, Ball State will be primed and ready for this huge revenge opportunity.
A quick glance at the History Book shows that BSU has struggled in this series posting a surprising 1-17 SU and 3-15 ATS record in the last 18 meetings. That fact is noted. Thankfully, since January 10th, 2017, MAC guests that hold a team won/loss percentage of .500 or better hold a respectable 160-125-6 ATS mark provided they are running the floor against a conference foe. If our “play on” side is battling an opponent that carries a team won/loss percentage of .500 or more, this technical situation cruises to a money-making 128-82-3 ATS including a stunning 106-54-2 ATS if they are priced as an underdog. That bodes well for Ball State! (Please note: Northern Illinois and Bowling Green also fit the final tightener on Tuesday night!)
This is not the best wagering spot for Kent either. When coming off three or more straight up wins, the Golden Flashes have lost their spark inking a soft 22-34-3 ATS record in their last 59 lined games. As long as KSU isn’t battling with revenge of any kind, this team trend falls to a horrible 13-31-2 ATS including a shocking 3-18-1 ATS in this spot provided the Golden Flashes are running with four or more days of rest. With those three parameters live and Kent holding a team won/loss percentage of .706 or better, this situation crashes to a horrible 0-13-1 ATS.
The Redbirds haven’t won at Kent since 1999 and have quietly dropped 11 straight on this floor. Fueled by serious revenge motivation, head coach James Whitford and his troops will stroll right into the M.A.C. Center and pull off this minor conference upset. Take Ball State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
