What to Know
The Cleveland State Vikings have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Northern Kentucky Norse at 3 p.m. ET Feb. 19 at Wolstein Center. The Vikings are out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between Cleveland State and the Wright State Raiders this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Cleveland State wrapped it up with an 85-68 win at home.
Meanwhile, NKU strolled past the PFW Mastodons with points to spare this past Friday, taking the game 63-50.
Barring any buzzer beaters, Cleveland State is expected to win a tight contest Sunday. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
In the teams' previous meeting in January, Cleveland State and the Norse were neck-and-neck, but the Vikings came up empty-handed after a 57-56 loss. Maybe Cleveland State will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
