Wright State Raiders (6-4; 4-4 ATS; 2-6 O/U) vs. Toledo Rockets (5-4; 3-4 ATS; 4-3 O/U)

The Wright State Raiders will target their third straight win in a road matchup against the Toledo Rockets Saturday afternoon from the Savage Arena in Toledo. The Raiders are coming off a 63-54 home win over Kent State, and the Rockets dropped a 93-87 decision to Marshall in their previous action. Toledo recorded an 82-78 win against Wright State last season.

Raiders Defense Shines in Second Straight Win

The Wright State Raiders played dazzling defense in their 63-54 home win against Kent State in their latest action last weekend. The Raiders only shot 38.5% on the night, however they limited Kent State to a 36.5% clip from the field. Raiders’ leading scorer Grant Benzinger only went 3 for 13 from the field and led all Raiders with 13 points in the victory. The senior guard has scored at least 16 points in four out of his last six games and is now up to 13.9 points per game on 40% shooting. Everett Winchester contributed with 10 points and five boards in the win against Kent State. The freshman forward has posted at least a 50% clip from the field in four straight games, and is now up to 10.2 points on the season.

The Raiders have now won two straight and six out of their last seven games after starting the season with an 0-3 record. They are currently placed at 195th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings. Wright State is not a high-scoring team, averaging only 69.4 points per game, ranking them down at 286th overall. They are strong defensivley, conceding an average of 63.3 points, good for 33rd overall.

Rockets Surrender Season-Hight 93 Points to Marshall

The Toledo Rockets went cold down the final stretch in their 96-87 home loss to Marshall in their previous action last weekend. The Rockets shot a solid 47.5% from the field, however Marshall was able to convert on 50% of their attempts from the field. Rockets’ top scorer Tre’Shaun Fletcher was tremendous in the losing cause, collecting a season-high 31 points and went 15 for 16 from the free-throw line. The senior guard is having an excellent year, already notching five double-doubles and is posting 19.3 points on a 44% efficiency from the field, and is averaging 9.6 rebounds per game. Jaelan Sanford contributed with 14 points and five rebounds in the loss. The junior guard has scored over 20 points three times this season, and is now up to an average of  16 points on 43% shooting.

The Rockets had their two game winning streak halted in the loss to Marshall and own a 3-3 record in their last six games. They do feature a solid offense however their defensive play has been an issue. Toledo is ranked at 172nd overall in Ken Pomeroy’s College Basketball Rankings.  They are averaging 78.1 points per game, ranking them 125th overall. They are allowing an average of 79.9 points, positioning them down at 308th overall.

Trends:

The Wright State Raiders are:

  • No Key Trends

The Toledo Rockets are:

  • 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
  • 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games.

I am siding with Wright State in this contest. Wright State is playing stifling defense, allowing an average of only 63 points on the season, and they are limiting opponents to 42.7% shooting. Toledo’s top three scorers are all shooting below 44%, so I am confident the Raiders can limit their offense. Furthermore, Toledo is a weak defensive team, allowing 80 or more points in four out of their last five games, and the Raiders have scoring depth, now featuring six players averaging at least nine points per game.
