Illinois-Chicago Flames at Wright State Raiders
- Spread: Wright State -7
- Over/Under: 149
- Time: 7 p.m. ET
- TV channel: ESPN2
The Flames (4-7 against the spread) enter this game with 46th-ranked Effective Field Goal Percentage (54.9%) in the country, in large part because of their 56.2 two-point percentage. The Raiders (6-5 ATS) have struggled to defend all over the floor this season, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.
