TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH
#882 KENT (-1) over Ohio at 7 PM EST
In a revenge mode and with a shot at knocking off the No. 1 team in the conference, Kent won’t disappoint when it hits the MAC Center tonight. Ohio checks in off three consecutive straight up wins over Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Miami, and this is the perfect spot for the mighty Bobcats to fall.
The Golden Flashes have dropped their last two meetings in this series and that includes an 80-72 blemish in Athens back on January 7th. Thankfully, in this matchup fighting with same season single revenge, Kent has been a solid investment lately inking a sensational 7-1 SU and 8-0 ATS record in its last eight tries. Equally impressive, at home running the floor with payback in mind, head coach Rob Senderoff’s boys own an incredible 37-3 SU and 32-5-3 ATS record provided their opponent busts in off a pointspread victory. In this role holding a conference won/loss percentage of .501 or higher, KSU explodes to a nearly perfect 23-1 SU and 20-1-3 ATS.
This is a rough wagering situation for the visiting Bobcats. In a true road game arriving with steam off two or more straight up wins, Ohio holds a weak 35-77 SU and 41-65-1 ATS tally provided its opponent owns a team won/loss percentage of .451 or higher. If the Bobcats are fighting a foe that was on the road last, this team trend falls to a miserable 17-52 SU and 20-46-1 ATS including an ugly 10-35 SU and 12-33 ATS mark provided head coach Jeff Boals’ boys are not off a blowout win of 17 points or more.
The Golden Flashes close with three of their final five inside the MAC Center and they will need this win to have any shot at winning the regular season conference title. Take Kent. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
