The Cleveland State Vikings and Wright State Raiders meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Nutter Center.
The Cleveland State Vikings need a win after splitting their last six games. The Cleveland State Vikings are averaging 63.3 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 72.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Algevon Eichelberger is averaging 13.7 points and 6.4 rebounds while Torrey Patton is averaging 10.2 points and 4.6 rebounds. Tre Gomillion is dishing 1.4 assists and Craig Beaudion is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Cleveland State Vikings are shooting 28.1 percent from beyond the arc and 66.6 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland State Vikings are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.8 rebounds per game. The Cleveland State Vikings have lost seven of their last eight road games.
The Wright State Raiders look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Wright State Raiders are averaging 81.3 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 70.3 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Bill Wampler is averaging 15.1 points and 4.3 rebounds while Loudon Love is averaging 14.8 points and 10.3 rebounds. Cole Gentry is the third double-digit scorer and Tanner Holden is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Wright State Raiders are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 66.6 percent from the free throw line. The Wright State Raiders are allowing 31.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.5 rebounds per game. The Wright State Raiders have won four straight home games.
The Vikings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raiders are 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games. The over is 7-3 in Vikings last 10 Thursday games. The over is 8-3 in Raiders last 11 overall.
These are two teams heading in completely different directions, but the Cleveland State Vikings have been profitable ATS lately and a lot of it has to do with shooting 48.3 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from deep in their last five games. As well as the Wright State Raiders play, they're only 3-3-1 ATS at home this season and can allow teams to hang around just a bit at times. I'll take my chances with the boatload of points and a hot offensive club in the Cleveland State Vikings.
