Not much on the bone for today with a huge day in the NFL. Toast made a few plays and here they are.
Ohio State 1H -4.5
Ohio State -9
Big 10 home teams just seem to have a edge. Ohio State is coming off a home loss to Wisconsin. They stay home to face a Penn state team that is at home against Rutgers, where they looked very good. OSU is a different animal as well. Early start gives OSU a little more of a advantage as well.
The Jaspers have covered 3 in a row. They lost a close game to a good Iona team. Seems like most models have around 8.
Coming off 2 straight losses I think we get a focused and little desperate Monmouth who is over 100 spots better in Kenpom. Also weird enough, Monmouth plays better on the road and Marist plays worse at home according to the numbers.
Wichita State -1.5
The Shockers have lost 3 in a row, now they are back home playing a cinni team that to me is equal, viewed as the same level. The Shockers should be able to feed off the home crowd and be up for this game. They also shoot free throws at a much better rate, so if it is close at the end, I like our chances.
