Wright State Raiders PK O/U: 136.5
The Northern Kentucky Norse and the Wright State Raiders will meet up in the Horizon League Tournament in college basketball action Tuesday.
Northern Kentucky stands at 25-8 overall on the year. The Norse have won their last four straight games, taking out Milwaukee, Green Bay, Detroit and then on Monday in the first round of the tournament NKU beat Oakland 64-63 in a tight one.
In the Monday win, Northern Kentucky’s lead scorer was Drew McDonald with 18 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Jalen Tate helped out the Norse with 14 points, five assists and five steals in that one as well.
Wright State enters this one with a 21-12 mark on the year so far. The Raiders took out Milwaukee and IUPUI in consecutive games this month, then beat Green Bay Monday in the first round of the tournament.
In the win over Green Bay, Wright State’s lead scorer was Billy Wampler, finishing on 18 points, four rebounds and one assist. Loudon Love doubled up for the Raiders in that one as well with his 10 points and 12 rebounds alongside three assists.
The Norse are 8-2 in their last 10 neutral-site games and 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. NKU is 1-4 ATS in their last five after a straight-up win and 1-6 ATS in their last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Raiders are 6-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 overall. Wright State is 6-2 ATS in their last eight neutral-site games and 4-11 in their last 15 Tuesday games.
As was generally expected, Wright State didn’t have too much trouble with Green Bay on Monday. The Raiders jumped out to a 33-20 lead after the first half and never looked back, getting some revenge for their last loss.
Speaking of which, the Raiders have just that one defeat in their last 10 games now, and the team is cruising along at a great clip. I’m likely going to stick with Wright State in this one, but it’ll be a great matchup with the Norse coming in hot as well.
