Kent State is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 7-1 in Kent State’s last 8 road games. Ohio is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 16-7 ATS in their last 23 home games. The under is 4-1 in Ohio’s last 5 games.

Ohio comes into this game on a roll and is looking to stay undefeated in conference play. This should be a lower scoring game, as both teams allow less than 65 points per game. The fact that Ohio is home will help them win the game, but I like Kent State to keep it close.
