Miami (OH) Redhawks vs Akron Zips 2/4/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Miami (OH) Redhawks will go against the Akron Zips in a Mid-American Conference clash in James A. Rhodes Arena, Akron, OH, on Friday, February 4, 2022, at 6:30 PM ET. Miami, which is ranked 228th in Kenpom, is in ninth place in the MAC with a 3-6 conference record.

 

The Redhawks are in a rut, after losing four of their past five matches (0-5 ATS). They struggled defensively in recent games, surrendering an average of 82.4 points per game over the previous five.

 

Miami, on the other hand, permits 72.4 points per game (276th) and ranks 321st in defensive efficiency in college basketball. The Redhawks’ defense is already one of the worst in the country, but they surrendered nearly 10 more ppg in recent weeks.

 

Opponents are shooting 43.1 percent from the field and 35.7 percent from three against the Miami defense this year, which ranks 194th and 301st, respectively. Their perimeter defense is a huge issue, as they surrender 9.8 three-point attempts per game (349th).

 

Dae Dae Grant (16.8 points), Mekhi Lairy (13.5 points), and Dalonte Brown are Miami’s three double-figure scorers (12.4 points). Furthermore, they are excellent ball handlers, generating just 10.1 turnovers per game (15th). Overall, the Redhawks’ play slipped on both ends of the floor, and that cannot continue against Akron on the road.

 

  • The University of Miami-Ohio Redhawks is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 matches.
  • Miami-Ohio is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches against Akron.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Miami-Ohio’s last 5 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Miami (OH) Redhawks vs Akron Zips Predictions 2/4/2022

 

With a 6-3 conference record, Akron is one of the better teams in the MAC this season (third). The Zips are a well-balanced squad that ranks 148th in Kenpom with a 136th offensive efficiency and a 177th defensive efficiency. Before their recent defeat to Toledo, Akron won four straight games.

 

The Zips’ defensive performance in their last match was troubling, as Toledo tallied 84 points while shooting a scorching 58.9% from the field. This year, Akron allowed only 63.3 points per game (40th), while opponents shot 42.3 percent (151st) from the field and 34.1 percent from the three-point range (229th).

 

On offense, they score 71.9 points per game (168th), shooting 45.2 percent (123rd) from the field and 34.4 percent from beyond the arc (148th). Although Akron has a low turnover rate of 11.3 per game (48th), they only attempt 54.1 shots per game (324th) at subpar shooting percentages.

 

They feature four players in double figures, with Ali Ali leading the way with 13.9 points per game. Ali is a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward with good length who can create his shot while scoring over the top of opponents on contested chances.

 

  • The University of Akron Zips is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Akron is 15-3 SU in their last 18 matches at home against Miami-Ohio.
  • The Zips are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches in the Mid-American Conference.

Miami (OH) Redhawks vs Akron Zips 2/4/2022 Picks Predictions PreviewsThe NCAAB pick for this game is the Akron Zip. Miami (OH) went 0-8 against the spread in their previous eight games. With a 9-1 record at home this year, Akron is a force to be reckoned with.

 

The Redhawks’ defense is a huge issue heading into Friday’s matchup, having allowed over 82 points in their past five games. The Zips, like Ali, have many skilled scorers who can take advantage of Miami’s subpar defense.

 

The Redhawks’ perimeter defense is the poorest, but they lack the weapons to make them pay, as they rank 169th in three-point shooting (34.1 percent ). Against Akron, Miami’s defense will keep struggling, and the Zips will cover. The Akron Zip will win to a predicted score of 72-66.
