The Akron Zips and the Ohio Bobcats meet in college basketball action from the Ohio Convocation Center on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.

Akron doesn’t have any new names on their injury report, while Ohio has AJ Brown listed as questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury and IJ Ezuma is out indefinitely with a foot injury.

Matchup History

Akron’s 83-77 win over Ohio back on January 28th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for Akron in this head-to-head matchup.


Akron is 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 road games while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 road games. Ohio is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall.


I’m leaning towards Akron here. Not a game I love necessarily as a bettor but I’ll most likely watch as a fan. Akron’s simply been the better team in conference play and the much more consistent team while Ohio has been very streaky, winning a couple then losing a couple and alternating that pattern. I just feel like Akron needs this game more and a win here would be massive towards their hopes of a MAC regular season crown. Give me the Zips here.
