What to Know
The Eastern Michigan Eagles are 3-12 against the Akron Zips since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Tuesday. EMU and Akron will face off in a Mid-American battle at 7 p.m. ET at George Gervin GameAbove Center. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.
The Eagles came up short against the Toledo Rockets this past Saturday, falling 70-63.
Meanwhile, Akron came up short against the Ohio Bobcats this past Friday, falling 90-81. Guard Xavier Castaneda did his best for Akron, finishing with 34 points (a whopping 42% of their total).
EMU is expected to lose this next one by 9. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a six-game streak of ATS wins.
The Eagles are now 6-19 while the Zips sit at 17-8. EMU is 4-14 after losses this year, Akron 4-3.
