What to Know

Miami (Ohio) is the favorite in this one, with an expected 10.5-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past ten games, so buyers beware.

Miami (Ohio) is now 9-13 while WMU sits at 4-19. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The RedHawks enter the matchup with only ten turnovers per game on average, good for 15th best in college basketball.
