What to Know
The PFW Mastodons have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the SIU-Edwardsville Cougars at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Sam M. Vadalabene Center. PFW should still be riding high after a victory, while SIU-Edwardsville will be looking to right the ship.
The Northern Kentucky Norse typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday the Mastodons proved too difficult a challenge. PFW took down NKU 71-57.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough game for SIU-Edwardsville on Saturday, and boy were they were right. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them as they lost 80-55 to the Bradley Braves.
Barring any buzzer beaters, PFW is expected to win a tight contest. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The Mastodons didn’t have too much trouble with the Cougars at home when the teams previously met four seasons ago as they won 86-71. The rematch might be a little tougher for PFW since the squad won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
