TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, JANUARY 31ST
#626 KENT (-18′) over Central Michigan at 7 PM EST
After a pair of poor performances against the Huskies and Bulls, the Golden Flashes will crank their game up a notch when the Chippewas come to town Tuesday evening. Central Michigan enters this MAC battle off a huge home win over Western Michigan and road games at Kent and Toledo will be problems for head coach Tony Barbee and his boys.
Historically speaking, the Golden Flashes have played well in this series inking a strong 38-11 SU and 27-20 ATS record in the last 49 meetings. Equally impressive, when playing inside the M.A.C Center, Kent holds a golden 17-0 SU and 12-2-1 ATS record in its last 17 battles including a spotless 6-0 SU and ATS provided they played in the comforts of home last. Also, in their last 40 contests, head coach Rob Senderhoff’s kids own a money-making 33-7 SU and 27-9-2 ATS record including a nearly perfect 14-1 SU and 13-1-1 ATS in this situation provided their opponent played in the comforts of home last.
This is a poor wagering spot for CMU. When coming off a straight up win, the Chippewas have struggled lately notching a rough 11-21 SU and 11-18-1 ATS record in the last 32 games including a dismal 7-14 SU and 5-13-1 ATS in this setting provided they enter off the comforts of a home game. Even worse, when competing with three days of rest or less, Central Michigan holds a soft 18-41 SU and 20-29-2 ATS tally in its last 59 games including a woeful 4-18 SU and 7-14-1 ATS provided its opponent arrives off a pointspread loss. With those two parameters in play and the Chips grabbing +9.5 or more, this angle falls to a filthy 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS.
With a huge showdown at Akron on deck, Coach Senderhoff will make sure his kids drop the hammer here. Take Kent. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
