Pick

I’m leaning towards Kent State here. Bowling Green has a lot of defensive issues, ones that I don’t think that Kent State will have any problems exploiting. On the other side, Kent State’s the better team here, especially on the defensive end of the floor and while this is a big number, I think the Golden Flashes find a way to get the job done at home and get a cover as well. Give me the Golden Flashes laying the points.
