Matchup History

Wright State is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 9-1-1 in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record. Youngstown State is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a winning road record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games.


I’m sticking with Youngstown State here. I’ve been high on Youngstown State coming into the season and I’ve said to anyone who will listen that I think this Penguins team should be the front-runner to win the Horizon League, they’re that good. Wright State’s talented, but this isn’t the same Wright State team that’s dominated the Horizon League in the past, and I think in the logjam atop the Horizon League, this game just means a bit more to Youngstown State here. Give me the Penguins laying the points.
