Against The Spread Pick
While it might seem like a lackluster Friday card, this Horizon game may actually be pretty exciting. The Raiders of Wright State will look to defend their number one seed in the conference when they take on the second place Northern Kentucky Norse. Both sides are playing extremely well at the moment, going 8-2 in their last 10 games. That being said, in the first meeting this season, Wright State put a smack-down on Northern Kentucky, beating them 95-63. The Norse are now at home where they are 10-5, however Wright State has an impressive 8-3 record on the road this season. That being said, the Raiders are playing an elite level of offense right now and I like Wright State to come away with the win.
Over Under Pick
Just knowing Wright State is playing in this game has me looking at the over. They are scoring an average of 81.3 points per game, which only drops off to 79.9 points in away games. Also, just in their last five games, they are scoring 83 points per game. Northern Kentucky has a good offense as well, but they generally only do well at home, where they average 76.1 points. The over is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings and that is where I will be leaning in this game as well.
