College Basketball Betting Trends
The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The Flames are 29-14 ATS in their last 43 Friday night road games.
The Raiders are 6-0 ATS in their last six February home games. Wright State is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
This is a revenge spot for the Raiders as they lost 76-72 at UIC back on January 12. Expect a focused and strong effort from Wright State as its only two home defeats this season have come by one point in one contest and overtime in the other. The Flames have shown some life since the win over the Raiders, but they are still a subpar team with a weak offense. Look for Wright State to put the clamps down and ease to a win by enough to cover the spread.
