The Akron Zips and Western Michigan Broncos face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at University Arena. When these two teams faced off on January 18th it was Akron that won 74-73.

Artis White was the best player for Western Michigan scoring 23 points and adding three rebounds. Akron was led by Ali Ali who finished with 18 points, five rebounds, and five assists. 

Akron comes into this game with a 16-7 record and they have gone 10-11 against the spread. In the last game against Kent State, Akron was competitive, but couldn’t make the plays late and were defeated by two points. Before that loss, Akron had won three games in a row. Akron is averaging 71.2 points while their defense is giving up 62.9 points per game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Western Michigan Broncos who sit with a 5-20 record and they have gone 10-11-1 against the spread. Even though they have really struggled, they were able to beat Central Michigan by 14 points in the last game. Western Michigan is averaging 65.2 points while their defense is giving up 76.1 points per game. Lamar Norman Jr has been the top player for Western Michigan averaging 20.1 points while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from behind the three-point line. 

Akron is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games played on Tuesday. The under is 5-5-1 in Western Michigan’s last seven games following a straight-up win. Western Michigan is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following an against the spread win. 

Even though Western Michigan has had issues winning games, they have found success covering spreads. I expect Western Michigan’s defense is going to slow down Akron, and that will be enough for them to cover the spread. Back Western Michigan against the spread. I do also think this will be slower paced and the under will cash.
