Cleveland State’s 72-60 win over PFW on the road back on January 16th, 2023, made it 5 wins in the last 6 meetings for the Vikings.
PFW is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games. Cleveland State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win.
This is a tough one to call, but I’m leaning towards Cleveland State here. The Vikings have just been the much better team in a lot of their recent games, and that includes the head-to-head matchup from a week and a half ago. PFW has just had issues closing the deal ATS, and it’s resulted in a lot of inconsistent play as of late. I’ll gladly side with the Vikings laying the points here.
