I will take the points with the Kent State Golden Flashes. Kent State found something in the 2nd half of the first meeting between these two after being down 20 points early. Kent State won the MAC last year and is still a super-talented team despite the bad record. Kent State has three true road wins in this conference and while last game's result was not ideal, Kent State was competitive in that contest at Ohio as well. Akron is coming off a tough loss at Toledo and I think this is a bit of a letdown after that loud and emotional game. I think Akron wins this one in the end but 7.5 points is a TON. If this game is close late and it comes down to free throws, Kent State has the big advantage ranked in the top 60 while Akron is at 176th. Give me the points. 

Ron’s Pick Kent State Golden Flashes: +7.5 -110
