The Kent State Golden Flashes and the Western Michigan Broncos meet in college basketball action from the Reed Fieldhouse on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Kent State is listed as an 11.5-point road favorite with a ML price of -800. The total for this game is set at 140.5 points.


Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Kent State’s 80-72 win back on January 3rd, 2023, made it four straight wins for Kent State in this head-to-head matchup.


Kent State is 21-5 ATS in their last 26 games following an ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record while the under is 24-7 in their last 31 road games. Western Michigan is 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss by 20 or more points.


I’m backing the under here. For Kent State, defense travels and I think the Golden Flashes’ solid defense can travel to WMU and hold down the Broncos, while Western Michigan isn’t built to take down the Kent State defense. On the other side, I don’t expect Kent State to light the scoreboards on fire, but to just do enough to get themselves a comfortable win. Give me Kent State.
