Western Michigan Chippewas vs Akron Zips. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Akron Zips. Western Michigan struggled on both ends of the court this year, ranking 308th in scoring offense, 331st in scoring defense, and 314th in defensive FG percent entering this game.

 

Akron’s defense is ranked 38th in scoring defense, 138th in defensive FG percent, and t-45th in rebound margin, while its offense is ranked 156th in scoring offense and 126th in FG percent.

 

Western Michigan is one of the poorest teams in the MAC, and the Broncos struggled on the road this season, going 0-6 overall and losing both MAC road matches by an average of 23.0 points per game.

 

Akron is 7-1 at home, and I believe the Zips offense can cover this double-digit spread because I believe the Zips defense will hold Western Michigan to around 50 points. The Akron Zips will win to a predicted score of 77-61.
