What to Know

The PFW Mastodons lost both of their matches to the Wright State Raiders last season on scores of 73-86 and 63-75, so they're hoping to turn the tables this season. The Mastodons and Wright State will face off in a Horizon League battle at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at Ervin J. Nutter Center. Wright State will be strutting in after a win while PFW will be stumbling in from a loss.

PFW ended up a good deal behind the Cleveland State Vikings when they played on Monday, losing 72-60.

Meanwhile, Wright State sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 78-74 victory over the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers on Saturday.

PFW is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past four games, so buyers beware.

The Mastodons are now 12-7 while the Raiders sit at 11-8. Wright State is 6-4 after wins this season, and PFW is 6-0 after losses.
