IUPUI takes on Cleveland State in Horizon League action. These teams met on Jan. 10 with Indiana-Purdue winning, 90-74 at home. Indiana-Purdue sits at 6-7 in the Horizon, in eighth place. Cleveland State is in last place at 2-12.

Jaguars are struggling

Indiana-Purdue has lost three straight games by a combined eight points. That came after they won three straight and four of five. IUPUI fell at Youngstown State, 75-73 on Thursday, despite shooting 46.3 percent from the field. Donel Cathcart III hit a three-pointer with five seconds left to give the Penguins the win. Three-point defense was a problem for the Jaguars, who allowed Youngstown State to shoot 42.3 percent (11-26). D.J. McCall led the Jags with 16 points and eight boards, while Ahmed Ismail added 15 points and eight caroms.

One player IUPUI missed on Thursday was forward Elijah Goss, who averages 7.0 points and 6.7 rebounds with 21 blocks. He’s listed as questionable for this game with an ankle injury. Cameron Justice leads the Jaguars with 19.2 points per game with 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals. On the season, they average 76.8 points per game on 45.3 percent shooting (33.6% 3pt). They allow 73.2 points per game on 44.2 percent shooting (35.3% 3pt).

Vikings also lose tough one

Cleveland State has struggled all season, They finally won a game on Feb. 9 against Milwaukee at home, 78-68, which broke a three-game losing streak. But on Thursday, they went back to losing, falling to Illinois-Chicago (8-5 Horizon), 81-77. The Flames won their fourth straight thanks to 20 points Marcus Ottey and a 51 percent shooting day from the field. The big issue for Cleveland State was their foul shooting, as they made just 12-of-23 (52.2%). Foul shooting has been an issue this season with the Vikings averaging just 67.2 percent (286th). Tyree Appleby led Cleveland State with 16 points and five assists.

On the season, Cleveland State is averaging 73.3 points per game on 42.6 percent shooting (36.6% 3pt). They are struggling on the defensive end, allowing 78 points (319th) on 44.2 percent shooting (32.4% 3pt). Appleby leads the Vikings with 16.9 points and 5.2 assists.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Cleveland State is not going to get too many opportunities to get a win. When you’re playing a team that is 3-8 on the road and has a key player banged up (in Goss), you have to take advantage. They played a solid game against Illinois-Chicago and I expect them to take this one outright.

Prediction: Cleveland State +4.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These are bad teams for a reason. They play little defense. Indiana-Purdue is 5-2 Over their last 7 Saturday games, while Cleveland State is 8-3 Over their last 11 Saturday games. The Jaguars have gone over in three of four games, while Cleveland State has gone over in two straight.

Prediction: Over 148
