The North Florida Ospreys and Kennesaw State Owls meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the KSU Convocation Center.

The North Florida Ospreys could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak.

The North Florida Ospreys are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.7 rebounds per game. The North Florida Ospreys have lost seven of their last eight road games.

The Kennesaw State Owls could also use a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Kennesaw State Owls are averaging 59.3 points on 35.8 percent shooting and allowing 77.1 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Tyler Hooker is averaging 19.2 points and 2.5 assists while Kosta Jankovic is averaging 8.2 points and 4.6 rebounds. Daniel Lewis is dishing 1.9 assists and Bobby Parker is grabbing 2.6 rebounds.

The Kennesaw State Owls are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Kennesaw State Owls have lost six of their last eight home games.

The Osprey are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss. The Fighting Owls are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 vs. Atlantic Sun and 9-24 ATS in their last 33 games overall. The under is 9-2 in Fighting Owls last 11 home games.

The Kennesaw State Owls are 5-14 ATS overall and 4-13 ATS as an underdog this season. The North Florida Ospreys are 12-9 ATS overall and eight of those covers have come on the road. Kennesaw State has lost eight straight games and is being outscored by an average of 17.6 points while shooting just 34.5 percent from the field in its last five games. North Florida has had its issues as well, but despite a four-game losing skid, the Ospreys are only being outscored by an average of 2.6 points in their last five games. Laying this many points with North Florida isn't ideal, but the Kennesaw State haven't been covering numbers despite being underdogs all year, and they've been getting rocked for the large part of the season.

Pick:
North Florida -11
