Cleveland State comes into this game with a 17-7 record overall and they have gone 10-12 against the spread. Even though they have found a lot of success, they are coming off a loss in their last game. It took overtime, but they gave up 102 points, and lost by four points. D’Moi Hodge was the top player for Cleveland State averaging 16.3 points while shooting 49 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Milwaukee Panthers who sit with a 9-18 record overall and they have gone 10-16 against the spread. Even though Milwaukee has struggled, they have won two games in a row. In the last game against Green Bay, the defense was strong giving up only 44 points and that led to the easy victory. Milwaukee is averaging 64.7 points while their defense is giving up 70.4 points per game. DeAndre Gholston has been the top player for Milwaukee averaging 14.7 points while shooting 36.3 percent from the field.
Milwaukee is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a winning straight-up record. The over is 6-0 in Cleveland State’s last six games overall. The under is 4-0 in Milwaukee’s last four games against a team with a losing road record.
Milwaukee has won two games in a row, but they still aren’t a very talented team and they are going to struggle to score in this game. I expect Milwaukee to struggle to get to 60 points, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back Cleveland State to come away with a cover of the spread.
