Akron Zips vs Kent State Golden Flashes. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Kent State Golden Flashes. The Zips’ defense is strong, ranking 27th in scoring defense and 56th in rebound margin. However, the offense battled to score points at times, ranking 170th in scoring offense.

 

Kent State’s defense is likewise strong, ranking 41st in scoring defense, 38th in defensive field goal percentage, and 67th in rebound margin, while the offense is mediocre, ranking 158th in scoring offense. Although Akron won some remarkable games against Buffalo and Toledo, this is still a club that struggles to score points.

 

Over the last month, Kent State looked like the MAC’s team to beat, and I believe the Golden Flashes’ defense will cause a lot of problems for Akron in this one, so I’m selecting Kent State to cover this tiny spread. The Kent State Golden Flashes will win to a predicted score of 65-62.
