Levi Bradley was the Huskies star with a contest high 25 points with 14 rebounds and four assists on 5-10 from the floor including 14-14 at the line. Eugene German gave Northern Illinois 20 points and seven boards on 7-17 shooting followed by a 17 point performance from Dante Thorpe on 8-12 from the field.

The Ohio Bobcats are looking for a return to form of several years ago where they were one of the top teams in the conference. Ohio struggled in their MAC opener in a 75-50 loss at the Central Michigan Chippewas who took command with a 39-18 second half burst. This came down to making shots and the Chippewas held a 42.2%-35.7% shooting advantage for seven more buckets.

Mike Laster was the Bobcats most effective performer with 19 points and five boards on 8-14 from the floor while Teyvion Kirk added 13 points and seven rebounds on 6-13 shooting. Kevin Mickle was the Bobcats next highest contributor with five points and six rebounds so the team needed more secondary scoring. 

Over is 21-7 in Northern Illinois last 28 Saturday games and over is 10-4-1 in Northern Illinois last 15 vs. Mid-American and over is 5-2-1 in Northern Illinois last 8 road games. Over is 18-6 in Ohio last 24 overall. Over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Ohio. 

The spread looks about right so I’ll take a shot at Ohio or the over with both teams being able to score…
