What to Know
The Wright State Raiders are on the road again Tuesday and play against the Northern Kentucky Norse at 7 p.m. ET Jan. 25 at BB&T Arena. The teams split their matchups last year, with NKU winning the first 81-75 at home on the road and the Raiders taking the second 77-71.
While not quite a landslide, the game between Wright State and the Illinois-Chicago Flames this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Wright State wrapped it up with a 97-81 win on the road.
Meanwhile, NKU strolled past the IUPUI Jaguars with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the contest 60-41.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Wright State is expected to win a tight contest. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 6-12), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Their wins bumped the Raiders to 11-8 and the Norse to 8-9. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Wright State and NKU clash.
