#789 Cleveland State at #790 Bowling Green

When and where: Dec. 15, 2019. Stroh Center, Bowling Green, OH, 4 p.m.

Bowling Green hopes to extend its winning streak to three straight when the Falcons play host to Cleveland State on Sunday. Bowling Green is 7-2 on the season while the Vikings are 4-6.

Vikings have lost two straight

Cleveland State was sitting at .500 until losing two straight to start the month of December. The Vikings lost at home to Toledo, 80-65, on Dec. 4 and then went on the road and lost at Kent State, 81-59.

Against Kent State, the Vikings fell behind by 21 at halftime, but played the game pretty much even in the second half.

Algevron Eichelberger led Cleveland State with 14 points and eight rebounds while Tre Gomillion added 13 points and Deante Johnson scored 10 points. The Vikings out rebounded Kent State 34-30.

Eichelberger leads the team averaging 13.1 points per game along with 7.9 rebounds. Craig Beaudion leads in assists with 2.3 per game.

Cleveland State averages only 61.2 points per game, ranking 335th nationally. The Vikings allow 72.6 points per game (264th).

Falcons have won two straight

Bowling Green has won its past two games plus six of their past eight. Most recently, the Falcons edged Oakland, 68-65, at home.

Bowling Green trailed by four with 1:26 left against Oakland but rallied to finish off the game with a 9-2 run.

Daeqwon Plowden led the Falcons with a career-high 23 points and 10 rebounds. It was the third double-double of his career. Tayler Mattos added 12 points and Dylan Frye scored 10.

Justin Turner leads the team averaging 19 points per game to go along with his 4.2 assists and 2 steals. Plowden is the top rebounded at 7.3 per game. Turner, however, is questionable with a hamstring injury.

Bowling Green averages 78.9 points per game, good for 59th nationally. The defense, though, isn’t as good at 72.9 points per game (267th).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Bowling Green is 4-2-1 against the spread, although in their last three games, they have failed to cover twice and once finished with a push. Prior to that, they had covered four straight games in which a line was posted.

Cleveland State is 4-6 on the season, but even worse against the spread at 3-6. They have failed to cover two pretty big lines in their most recent efforts, 19 points against Kent State and 13 points against Toledo. With a terrible offense and a pretty bad defense, it’s not likely the Vikings will be able to cover even this high number

Take Bowling Green -16.5

Prediction: Bowling Green -16.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Cleveland State has had five games go over on the season compared to four under the total. The Vikings have had three straight games go over and five of their last seven.

Bowling Green has also had more games go over (four) than under (three) on the season. Bowling Green’s most recent game went under, but three of their past five have gone over.

Take Over

Prediction: Over 142

Robert Maxwell

Robert was born and raised on the mean streets of Huntington Beach, California, and growing up he spent more time on his surf board than in the classroom. Robert then turned things around in college when hr got involved on the newspaper staff. He started writing sports articles and then worked for the main daily paper. Covering sports led to betting on sports and I found I had a pretty good idea of picking winners. We are glad to have Robert on OUR team.
