The Youngstown State Penguins and Wofford Terriers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.
Youngstown State comes into this game a 19-14 record overall and they have gone 14-17 against the spread. In the first game of the tournament, the Penguins faced off against Morgan State, and they were able to win 70-65. At halftime, Youngstown State was up 40-25 and they held on in the second half to win. Youngstown State is averaging 72.7 points while their defense is giving up 69.5 points per game. Dwayne Cohill has been the top player for Youngstown State averaging 14.6 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. There are four different players that are averaging at least 10.3 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wofford Terriers who sit with a 19-13 record overall and they have won three of their last four games. The one loss was in the semifinals of the Southern tournament against Chattanooga. The offense only managed to score 56 points, and that led to the defeat. BJ Mack has been the top player for Wofford averaging 16.5 points while shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 44.8 percent from behind the three point line. Max Klesmitt has also been having a big season averaging 14.9 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field and 34 percent from behind the three point line.
Youngstown State is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games overall. Wofford is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following an against the spread loss. The over is 4-1 in Wofford’s last five games overall. The over is 4-1 in Youngstown State’s last five games following a straight up win.
Youngstown State almost blew the last game because of their defense, and they will struggle on that side of the ball going against Wofford. Look for Wofford to find offensive success in this game against the Penguins defense, and this game will get out of control early. I expect Wofford to win this game and they will cover the spread.
