Score: 64 - 68
Point Spread: +6/-110 Wright State
This game pairs last year’s regular-season champion in the Horizon League (NKU) vs. the conference tournament champion Raiders, who were also the preseason favorite in this year’s coaches poll. NKU was second.NKU comes in 13-4 overall and 3-1 in Horizon League play, and WSU is 8-9, 2-2. It is a key early game for positioning in the league and Im betting it will be closely contested despite of what is a divergence in records but not head to head talent. In. physical game look for Loudon Love, a diverse skilled and bulky 6-foot-9, 280-pound sophomore center and a preseason first team all-Horizon selection, to key to Wright State covering here tonight.
line according to my projections is off by almost 4 points. True line value here sits at -2.5 favouring Northern Kentucky which suggests according to my data a one possession game.
