The Eastern Michigan Eagles (16-15, CONF 6-12) and Kent State Golden Flashes (19-12, CONF 9-9) face off on Monday in the MAC tournament at the Kent State Mac Center. The home team has won the last three games between Eastern Michigan and Kent State, with the Eagles winning 70-49 earlier this season. 

Eastern Michigan has been up and down this season and coming into this game they have lost four of the last five games. During the four losses, the Eagles failed to cover the spread.

In the last game against Toledo, Eastern Michigan’s offense struggled putting up only 57 points and that led to a 22 point loss. Eastern Michigan is led by forward Ty Groce who is averaging 11.4 points while shooting 41 percent from the field. In the last two games, Groce has scored only 18 points total.

Kent State is a talented team, but they have been really inconsistent this year, and over the last ten games they have only four wins. Kent State is a team that could make a run to the NCAA tournament, or they could lose in this game and neither would actually be that surprising.

Over the last five games the Golden Flashes are averaging 80 points per game while the defense is giving up 77.8 points. At home this season Kent State has only lost three games, and the main reason is because the defense is better giving up only 68.7 points per game. 

The under is 11-4 in Eastern Michigan’s last 15 games overall. The over is 6-2 in the last eight games played on Monday for Kent State. The home team is 9-2 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between Eastern Michigan and Kent State. The under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings between the Eagles and Golden Flashes.

Kent State is a strong offensive team and Eastern MIchigan is going to have all kinds of issues keeping up. Look for Eastern Michigan to score less than 65 points and that will lead to a win and cover by Kent State.
