Against the spread

The Panthers took the 2 regular-season games, covering thespread by a combined 20.5 points.

Both of these teams hit the offensive glass hard. Cleveland State has gone a combined 2-4 ATS against its 3 closest league competitors (Milwaukee, Purdue-Ft. Wayne, Detroit Mercy) in that area.

After struggling in mid-February the Panthers have rallied with strong play the last 3 games. BACK MILWAUKEE +2.5 (-105) in this game. The leverage here is not much so consider a partial-unit play.


Peg this total in this rabbit Milwaukee-vs.-turtle Cleveland State match-up as landing in the 145-150 neighborhood. STEER CLEAR.
