Tonight there are three nice match-ups for MAC Shootyhoops. First up, the Toledo Rockets take on the Saint Joseph’s Hawks out of the Atlantic 10. Toledo lost a couple of their best players, but there is still plenty of talent on the roster. The game will be available to stream on ESPN at 7pm. The line is a pick’em.
The Jim Groce era begins at Akron with a match-up against the Cleveland State Vikings. The Zips are 6 point favorites, but the line has moved down from the opening 7.5. That’s a pretty big shift for an early season MAC basketball game. It also tips off at 7pm on ESPN 3.
For last match-up of the evening, the Kent State Golden Flashes take on the Youngstown State Penguins. Kent is a 5 point favorite and this one tips off at 9ish on ESPN 3. It’s the second game in Akron as part of the Coaches Against Cancer double header.
