Point Spread: +6½/-105 Akron
4* NCAAB SMASH on Akron +6.5
We find Northwestern in a letdown spot this evening as it had its sights set on the NCAA tournament. It will be very difficult for the Wildcats to get up for this game as they clearly don't want to be playing in the NIT.
Akron wanted to be dancing as well, but defeating a team from a power conference would be a nice consolation prize.
The Zips have been a terrific investment at 31-12 ATS in their last 43 games overall. They are 38-16-5 ATS in their last 59 games following a loss, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games vs. a team with a winning record.
I just don't think Northwestern's heart will be in this one tonight. Take Akron.
