Who's Playing

Maine @ Akron

Current Records: Maine 6-4; Akron 6-4

What to Know

The Akron Zips will look to defend their home court Monday against the Maine Black Bears at 7 p.m. ET. The Zips are out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.

Akron strolled past the Wright State Raiders with points to spare last week, taking the game 66-54.

Meanwhile, Maine narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Merrimack Warriors 50-47.

Akron is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last Wednesday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 6-4. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Akron and Maine clash.
