The Line: Miami-Ohio RedHawks +2.5 -- Over/Under: 147
The Bowling Green Falcons and the Miami RedHawks meet in college basketball action from Millett Hall on Saturday.
Bowling Green comes in here at 21-7 so far. Since their last loss to Akron, Bowling Green has been on a three-game win streak, taking out Ball State, Ohio and Akron in that time.
In the win over Akron, Bowling Green’s Justin Turner put up 19 points with four rebounds and one assist. Dylan Frye added 16 points, six assists and five rebounds in that one and Daeqwon Plowden posted a double-double on 10 points, 13 rebounds and one assist.
Over on the Miami side, they’re 11-17 this year. In the last four games, Miami is 2-2, with losses to Akron and Kent State sandwiched between wins over Northern Illinois and Central Michigan.
In the win over Central Michigan, Miami’s Nike Sibande led the team with 17 points, nine rebounds and one assist. Milos Jovic put up 15 points, five rebounds and one assist there, and Isaiah Coleman-Lands posted 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for Miami.
Miami is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win. Miami is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and the under is 4-0 in their last four Saturday games.
Meanwhile, Bowling Green is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games an 6-14-2 ATS in their last 22 overall. The over is 15-5 in Bowling Green’s last 20 road games and the under is 5-1 in their last six after a straight-up win.
Bowling Green is normally a pretty good scoring team; they’ve put up 77 or more in five of their last eight outings. There were only two losses among those eight, and Bowling Green will be riding high here after getting some revenge versus Akron their last time out.
As for Miami, they’re not much of an offensive threat, usually finishing in the 60s or even 50s in most cases. All things considered here, I like Bowling Green better and I don't think they'll have too many difficulties covering in this one.
