The Cleveland State Vikings and Minnesota Golden Gophers meet Tuesday in college basketball action at the Williams Arena.

The Cleveland State Vikings won just 10 games last season but four of their wins came in their last six games. Jaalam Hill returns after 11.2 points and 6.1 rebounds while Kasheem Thomas is back after averaging 5.8 points and 2.9 assists. Algevon Eichelberger played in 31 games last season and Deante Johnson averaged 16.2 minutes per game. The Cleveland State Vikings lost a lot of key players from last season, so guys must step up, but Hill is a senior forward who shot 59.1 percent from the field last year, so he’s more than capable of leading this club and making the Vikings tougher to beat than they were a year ago. The Cleveland State Vikings have lost six of their last eight road games.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers won 22 games last season that ended in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Daniel Oturu returns after averaging 10.8 points and seven rebounds while Gabe Kalscheur averaged 10 points and two rebounds. Eric Curry played 18.7 minutes per game last year and Michael Hurt played in 28 games. The Minnesota Golden Gophers say goodbye to seven players from last year, including their top-two scorers, so there’s going to be a transition period from the start. However, the addition of 4-star recruit Tre Williams is exciting and he’s good enough to keep Minnesota competitive in a loaded Big Ten. The Minnesota Golden Gophers have won six of their last eight home games.

The Vikings are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Golden Gophers are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 Tuesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 6-0 in Vikings last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Golden Gophers last 7 home games.

The Cleveland State Vikings weren't good last season to say the least and there's even more question marks with so many players no longer on the roster. With that said, the Minnesota Golden Gophers lost a lot of players of their own and are a team overall that often plays down to their competition, which has led to a lot of questionable results. Minnesota has the ability t run away with this game, but I'm going to take my chances with the Cleveland State Vikings and the points.
