Money Line Pick
The Ohio Bobcats are looking for just their second two-game winning streak since early December when they entertain the Kent State Golden Flashes on Friday. Ohio has not been able to sustain much success this season, which is why it is .500 overall and 6-9 in the Mid-American Conference. Senior guard Jordan Dartis (13.2 points per game) is questionable due to a leg injury. The Golden Flashes are coming off a 74-61 victory over Miami (OH) on Tuesday. Senior guard Antonio Williams has delivered 34 and 17 points in the past two outings. Kent State dominated the previous head-to-head matchup 87-72 just two weeks ago. The Golden Flashes are 5-2 ATS in their last seven as underdogs and 5-2 ATS in their last seven as road underdogs. Ohio is 2-5 ATS in its last seven following a win. Go with KENT STATE and don’t bother taking the points.
Over Under Pick
Williams has the Golden Flashes rolling on offense, as three of their last four point totals are 87, 98, and 74. They are shooting 45.4 percent from the floor as a team this season. Dartis’ absence would hurt the Bocats, but they still feature Jason Preston (16.3 ppg) and Ben Vander Plas (15.4 ppg). The over is 10-4 in the Bobcats’ last 14 following a win. Expect this one to go OVER the total.
