Kent State is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The over is 4-1 in Kent State’s last 5 games. Akron is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 7-3 in Akron’s last 10 home games.

These two teams come into this game with just a half game separating them in the standings. Both teams have had success in recent games and this should be a very good game. I am taking the over in this game. Both teams have been scoring a good amount of points and I think anything under 131 is safe to take.
