The Mastodons are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss and are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. The Penguins are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. The Penguins are also 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. I like for the Mastodons to keep this one close as they are an elite free throw shooting club at 6th in the nation. Youngstown has struggled against the spread and may win but not cover.
