Ohio trailed 35-29 at halftime, but they out scored Akron 45-32 in the second half for the win. The Bobcats shot 45.5% from the field and made 17 free throws in the game.

Bowling Green vs Ohio Betting Prediction 

Ohio comes into this matchup looking for their fourth straight win and they are coming off of a very nice win against Akron in their last game. The Bobcats 10-5 in conference play and they are only two games back in the race. Bowling Green has struggled over the last few weeks and they are 1-4 in their last five road games. The Falcons are only shooting 43.2% from the field and I don’t think that is enough to get it done against this powerful Ohio offense. Take the Bobcats at home.
