The Miami-Ohio Redhawks and the Akron Zips from the Rhodes Arena on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Akron is listed as a 13.5-point home favorite with an attached ML price of -1000. The total for this game is set at 140.5 points.


Miami-Ohio comes in with a clean bill of health while Akron hasn’t listed a new injury in the last two-plus months, so barring any last-minute announcements, Akron will come in at full strength as well.

Matchup History

Akron’s won seven straight meetings between these two teams after a 71-59 decision back on February 6th, 2022, making it six covers for Akron in the last seven meetings.


Miami-Ohio is 18-37-2 ATS in their last 57 games overall and 5-17 ATS in their last 22 road games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Akron is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-2 in their lats 7 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.


I’m backing Akron here. I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Zips over the course of the season, but the reality here is that Akron’s the better team by a fair margin and Miami-Ohio has had big time defensive issues over the last couple of weeks, especially on the road. Akron’s been so good at home and they’ve won their last pair of conference home games by a combined 62 points. Give me Akron laying the points.
