Akron Zips vs Bowling Green Falcons 1/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Akron Zips will go against the Bowling Green Falcons in a Mid-American Conference clash in Stroh Center, Bowling Green, OH, on Thursday, January 20, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST). This year, Akron got off to a shaky start, dropping three of its first five matches.

 

The Zips fought back with a six-game unbeaten run that included victories against Marshall, Wright State, and Buffalo. Since then, they lost two of their four games, against Ohio and Kent State. Their other two matches were triumphs against Ball State and Western Michigan, both of which they were heavy favorites in.

 

Bowling Green covered in six of the past eight meetings between Akron and Bowling Green. The Zips are 14-3 versus the Falcons on the road.

 

Their free throw percentage is a liability on that end of the floor, as they made fewer than 67 percent of their tries. They’ll be up against a struggling Bowling Green defense, which is ranked No. 288 in terms of efficiency.

 

Ali Ali tops Akron with 13.9 points, while Xavier Castaneda tops the team with 13.3 points. F Enrique Freeman averages 12.6 points and 10.7 rebounds, to finish his double-double.

 

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Akron’s last 10 matches.
  • The University of Akron Zips is 16-4 SU in their last 20 matches against Bowling Green.
  • Akron is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Akron Zips vs Bowling Green Falcons Predictions 1/20/2022

 

Before going on a five-game unbeaten run, Bowling Green lost four of its first six games. Since the start of conference play, the Falcons lost four of their first five games. During that period, they only had one victory, an 87-83 overtime victory over Miami (Ohio).

 

They beat Northern Illinois 92-83 on Tuesday to get back on track after a tough period. Bowling Green covered the spread in six of its previous nine games and claimed five of its last six home matches. The Falcons are ranked No. 97 in adjusted efficiency heading into this matchup.

 

They have a field goal percentage of 209, which puts them in the bottom half of the league. They do not, however, give the ball over much and do a good job on the offensive glass. Bowling Green’s bench produces a lot of points, ranking third in the country in bench minutes.

 

The Falcons will go up against an Akron defense ranked 203rd in adjusted efficiency. Daeqwon Plowden, a guard, averages 16.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. Joe Reece, a forward, has 11.7 points and 6.1 rebounds, while Trey Diggs, a guard, has 6.1 rebounds and 10.1 points.

 

  • The University of Bowling Green Falcons is 6-3 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Bowling Green’s last 5 matches against Akron.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Bowling Green’s last 6 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Akron Zips vs Bowling Green Falcons. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Bowling Green Falcons. This season, Akron depended on their shooting to win matches, which does not make them an enticing road bet.

 

The Zips aren’t playing well defensively, and I’d rather bet on a club that can defend effectively away from home. Another thing I dislike about them is that they are one of the most unskilled teams in the country. This year, Bowling Green has comparable stats, but they do significantly better at home.

 

In front of their home fans, the Falcons will be more defensively intense, and will naturally shoot better. They covered the spread in six of their previous nine matches, indicating that the market is undervaluing them. The Bowling Green Falcons will win to a predicted score 77-72.
