The Bowling Green Falcons (21-8, 12-4 CONF) and the Kent State Golden Flashes (18-11, 8-8 CONF) will meet on Tuesday, March 3rd for a MAC conference matchup at the MAC Center in Kent, OH. The game will be played at 7:00 PM eastern time.
Bowling Green is coming off a bad, 73-55 road loss to Miami-OH in their last game. Bowling Green was considered the favorite to win the MAC not too long ago, but a loss to one of the worst teams in the conference is questionable. Kent State is coming off a 76-69 road loss to Ohio in their last game. Kent State has lost three of its last four games overall.
Bowling Green scores 74.4 points per game on 42.1 percent field goal shooting this season. Bowling Green’s leading scorer is G Justin Turner, who scores 18.3 points per game. The leading rebounder for Bowling Green is G Daeqwon Plowden, who earns 8.5 rebounds per game as a team. Bowling Green allows 72.0 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a +2.4 scoring differential so far this season. Bowling Green also earns 39.9 rebounds, 12.2 assists, 2.2 blocks, and 5.4 steals per game as a team.
Kent State scores 75.8 points per game on 45.2 percent field goal shooting this season. Kent State’s leading scorer is G Antonio Williams, who scores 14.4 points per game. The leading rebounder for Kent State is F Danny Pippen, who earns 7.0 rebounds per game. Kent State allows 69.6 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a +6.2 scoring differential so far this season. Kent State also earns 35.8 rebounds, 13.8 assists, 4.2 blocks, and 7.0 steals per game as a team.
Bowling Green is 10-15-2 against the spread this season and 5-4-1 against the spread in their last ten games. Bowling Green is also 6-4 against the spread on the road so far this season. Kent State is 12-14-1 against the spread this season and 4-6 against the spread in their last ten games. Kent State is also 7-6 against the spread at home so far this season.
These two teams have been really inconsistent this entire conference season. Kent State got the better of Bowling Green in the first meeting between these teams, so there is no doubt as to why they are favorites at home this time. I will lean Kent State -4 at home due to Bowling Green's recent bad loss to Miami-OH, but to be honest, I would not be surprised at anything at this point.
