Wright State is 1-5 against the spread following a loss, 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games, and 1-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Youngstown State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games and 4-1 against the spread against the Horizon League. The favorite has covered the point spread in six of the last seven meetings of these two.
Neither of these teams can be counted on but for me it is a lean to the home team to cover.
