The Ohio Bobcats and the Kent State Golden Flashes will meet up on the college basketball court Tuesday.

Ohio sits here at 12-14 on the season. Following a six-game losing streak versus Northern Illinois, Akron, Miami OH, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan and Bufflao, the Bobats took you Bowling Green.

In the win over the Falcons, Ohio’s lead scorer was Jason Carter on 23 points, eight assists and one rebound. Teyvion Kirk added 17 points for the Bobcats there and Ben Vander Plass put-up 11 points with seven boards.

Over on the Kent State side, they’re 19-8 this season. After consecutive wins over Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan, the Flashes have lost their last two against Central Michigan and Buffalo.

The Flashes’ lead scorer in the loss to the Bulls was Antonio Williams on 17 points and five rebounds. Philip Washington pulled down 13 boards with eight points in that one, and Anthony Robards had 13 points.

The Bobcats are 6-20 ATS in their last 26 overall and 5-20-1 ATS in their last 26 road games. Ohio is 1-6 ATS in their last seven versus the MAC and 0-6 ATS in their last six Tuesday games and 0-4 ATS in the last four after an ATS win.

Meanwhile, the Flashes are 6-1 ATS in their last seven after a straight-up loss and 5-2 ATS in their last seven Tuesday games. Kent sTate is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 after an ATS loss.

Generally speaking, Kent State probably has the edge here. The Flashes have a better team and can score pretty well when so inclined.

The Flashes won on the road 66-52 the last time these teams met up, and I don’t anticipate much difference here. I”m going Flashes.

Pick:
Kent State Golden Flashes -6.5
