TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND
#649 WRIGHT ST (-) over Cleveland St at 3 PM EST
After getting hammered at Youngstown State on Thursday by the final of 88-70, Wright State will bounce back in a hurry when it visits Cleveland State. The Vikings limp into this conference battle off a 14-point SU and ATS home loss to the Norse and they’ll have trouble once again versus the Horizon League’s best team. Let’s break down the numbers.
According to the History Book, WSU has played well in this series lately posting a proud 13-4 SU (9-8 ATS) record in the last 17 meetings. In addition, when carrying a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, the Raiders sport a respectable 62-44-2 ATS mark provided they hit the hardwood off a straight up loss. In this setting arriving off a conference game, Wright State cruises to a money-making 49-29-2 ATS including a reliable 21-7-1 ATS provided they take the court off a blowout loss of 10 points or more. Also, in conference play checking in off a straight up loss as a favorite, WSU carries a profitable 27-17-1 ATS mark including 15-8-1 ATS if they’re battling on the road.
This is not the spot you want to be throwing hard earned cash on Cleveland State. As an underdog fighting with revenge, the Vikings have been at their financial worst notching a horrible 32-136 SU and 67-97-4 ATS record. In this role competing against a foe that arrives off a straight up loss, CSU falls to a woeful 11-53 SU and 22-39-3 ATS including a horrible 5-35 SU and 12-30-2 ATS if its opponent owns a team won/loss percentage greater than .480. Also, when priced as an underdog of +8 or more and competing against a foe that takes the court off a double-digit straight up loss, the Vikings own a feeble 3-15 SU and 5-12-1 ATS mark.
The Raiders got absolutely smashed on the board (43-24) in their loss to Penguins. Rest assured, head coach Scott Nagy will make darn sure his boys clean the glass in this contest. Take Wright State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
