(NCAAB) Northern Kentucky vs. UIC, 01/20/2022 8:00 PM, Score: 74 - 70
Point Spread: 4.00 | -108.00 Northern Kentucky (Away)
Result: Win
This is an 8* PLAY on NKU.

In a game between two teams hungry for a win, I'm going to grab the points as I foresee this one being decided by whichever one has its hands on the ball last.

The Norse are 6-9 after a 74-64 road loss at Robert Morris, while the Flames are 7-8, but entering feeling somewhat contented here after three straight victories, most recently pulling away for an 80-63 win over Green Bay.

NKU has the defense to compete here, allowing 69.3 points per game. UIC is conceding 70.3.

Overall on the season, their offensive numbers are nearly identical as well.

Not much seperates these teams, but expect NKU to be the one to rebound here after its latest loss, while I do expect UIC to come out flat. One last supporting stat sees NKU having gone 7-2 ATS in its last nine after a three-games or longer ATS losing streak.

Grab the points, the play is NORTHERN KENTUCKY.

Good luck, NP
