Akron Zips vs Ohio State Buckeyes Predictions 11/9/2021


The #17 Ohio State Buckeyes completed its preseason training with an 82-46 victory against Indianapolis in a Value City Arena exhibition match on Monday.


Jamari Wheeler (Penn State transfer), senior Justin Ahrens (small forward), freshman Meechie Johnson (shooting guard), sophomore Zed Key (center), and junior E.J. Liddell (power forward) were the starters. Eugene Brown, a sophomore, scored 15 points and grabbed four rebounds off the bench.


After placing fourth in modified offense and 82nd in adjusted defense last season, Ohio State will try to strike a proper balance between attack and defense this season. Chris Holtmann stated that he wants both his sides of the ball to be “top-25,” but to do that, Ohio State will need to improve their post defense and communication on the perimeter.


  • The University of Ohio State is 3-6 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • The Ohio State Buckeyes are 16-4 SU in their last 20 home matches.
  • Ohio State is 13-0 SU in their last 13 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Akron Zips vs #17 Ohio State Buckeyes. The NCAAMB pick for this game is the #17 Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio State is expecting to play at the same level — if not stronger — than last season when they placed fifth in the Big Ten and received a second-round NCAA Tournament seed.


They won’t be able to accomplish it without Duane Washington Jr. and CJ Walker, but numerous crucial contributors including E.J. Liddell, Justice Sueing, and Kyle Young will be back. Notably, Joey Brunk, Jamari Wheeler, and Cedric Russell are all fascinating transfers. The  #17 Ohio Buckeyes will win to a predicted score of 81-67.
