Kent State @ Northern Illinois
Current Records: Kent State 16-3; Northern Illinois 7-12
What to Know
After two games on the road, the Northern Illinois Huskies are heading back home. NIU and the Kent State Golden Flashes will face off in a Mid-American battle at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday at Convocation Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Huskies winning the first 65-63 on the road and Kent State taking the second 63-55.
Everything went NIU’s way against the Eastern Michigan Eagles this past Saturday as they made off with an 88-67 win.
Meanwhile, Kent State took their game against the Ball State Cardinals this past Friday by a conclusive 86-65 score. Kent State got double-digit scores from four players: guard Sincere Carry (18), forward Chris Payton (16), guard Jalen Sullinger (13), and guard Malique Jacobs (11).
NIU have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 13-point spread they are up against. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Their wins bumped the Huskies to 7-12 and the Golden Flashes to 16-3. Both NIU and Kent State have easy wins in recent memory. We’ll see which one’s ego takes a hit when they face off.
