Against The Spread Pick
Akron comes into this Tuesday MAC contest flying high on a five game win streak. Of those five wins one came against this Bowling Green team. The Zips have scored 74 or more will holding opponents to 65 and under in that span. Bowling Green has had their own success as well, winning three of their last four. This historical matchup has been dominated by Akron as they have won eighteen of the last twenty meetings, and are 7-1 on the road against Bowling Green. The Falcons are a bad 5-13-2 ATS in their last twenty games. Both of these teams have solid offenses, but the difference comes on defense where Akron is significantly better only allowing opponents an average of 65 points per game. I see the Zips going on the road and being able to hold the Falcons offense down much like the last meeting. Take Akron with the points.
Over Under Pick
Akron ranks in the top 75 in pretty much every major defensive category. Teams are shooting a terrible 66 percent from the charity strip against the Zips which could be a contributing factor to the last seven of Akron’s games going under. Last time these two met the under hit with plenty of room to spare. Bowling Green seems to have problems playing the Zips at home and I see that contenting here. Akron is only allowing opponents 65 points per game and less than 46 percent from the field. I think this one is controlled by Akron’s defense and the Falcons struggle to score over 65. Take the under.
