Purdue Fort Wayne is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. Cleveland State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The over is 10-2-1 in Cleveland State’s last 13 games following an ATS win. The road team is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings. 

Cleveland State is on a nice roll coming into this game and is the better defensive team. They also rebound the ball well and average just under 75 points per game. I think Cleveland State wins the game, but I like Purdue Fort Wayne to keep it within single digits.
