The Oakland Golden Grizzlies will host the Green Bay Phoenix in a Horizon League battle Saturday afternoon from the Athletics Center O’Rena. The Phoenix were crushed 101-83 against Detroit on Thursday night, and the Golden Grizzlies were toppled 67-64 by Milwaukee in their previous action. Green Bay defeated Oakland in both meetings last season.

Green Bay Trounced by Detroit in First Conference Loss

The Green Bay Phoenix played poor defense in a 101-83 road loss to Detroit on Thursday night to fall to 3-1 in ACC play. The Phoenix shot 43% on the night, while Detroit was able to convert on 53% of their field goals. Green Bay’s leading scorer Sandy Cohen III struggled in the defeat, going 2 for 8 from the field for only 7 points. The senior guard scored 30 points in a win over Cleveland State last weekend, and he is currently averaging 16.4 points on 45% shooting on the season.

Kameron Hankerson is locked in right now, scoring at least 14 points in four out of his last five games which included 17 points in Thursday’s loss. The junior guard stands third in team scoring with 9.2 PPG on the season.

Green Bay is currently placed at 201st in the nation in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings, and they own a weak 2-6 road record. The Phoenix scored over 90 points in each of their first three conference wins, and they are currently averaging 85.8 points on the year, good for 11th in the country. Green Bay will give up points, allowing an average of 82.9 points, pegging them down at 345th overall.

Oakland Flat in Loss to Milwaukee

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies have now dropped two straight games after opening Horizon League play with three consecutive wins. They could not get their shots to fall in a 67-64 home loss to Milwaukee on Thursday. Oakland only posted a 35% clip from the field in the defeat, while Milwaukee was able to register a 47% shooting percentage. Jaevin Cumberland led the way in the offensive end with 17 points on a 5 for 12 effort from three-point range. The junior guard has hit the 20 point mark five times this season, and he is carrying an average of 17.1 PPG on 44% shooting.

Oakland’s top scorer Xavier Hill-Mais couldn’t find a groove in Thursday’s loss, converting on only 1 of 8 field goals for five points. The junior forward has scored 16 or fewer points in three out of his last four games, and he is averaging 21.1 PPG on the year.

The Golden Grizzlies are ranked at 238th in the nation in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings, and they hold a 4-5 home record. Oakland relies on their offense to win games, and they are averaging 76.8 points on the season, ranking them 110th in the country. The Golden Grizzlies defense has been an issue this season, and they are allowing an average of 79.4 points, pegging them 324th overall.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am siding with Oakland in this contest. Milwaukee’s defense has been a glaring weakness. They just surrendered 101 points against Detroit on Thursday, and they have surrendered an average of 91.3 points in their four conference games.

Furthermore, Oakland relies on their offense to win games, and their potent offense should exploit Milwaukee’s shaky defense. Oakland is effective from three-point range, and they have two big threats in Xavier Hill Mais (21.1 PPG) and Jaevin Cumberland (17.1 PPG) who are both capable of big points.

Prediction: Oakland Golden Grizzlies

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This contest should feature plenty of scoring from both sides. Milwaukee’s struggling defense has squandered at least 82 points in five out of their last six games, and the over is 17-4 in their last 21 games overall, and 20-8 in their last 28 road games.

In addition, the Golden Grizzlies defense is also a weakness. They have allowed an average of 73 points in conference play, and opponents are shooting a remarkable 49.8% against them this season.

Prediction: Over

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I expect Oakland to pile on the points in this one. Oakland is shooting a dazzling 41.6% from three-point range, good for sixth in the nation, and the Phoenix’ three-point defense stands down at 267th in the country. Also, Green Bay has squandered an average of 90.6 points in their last five road games.

Prediction: Oakland Team Total: Over

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

I am taking the points with Green Bay on the halftime line. Green Bay is productive in the opening half where they are averaging a stellar 37 points on the season, while Oakland is only averaging 29.3 points in the first half in their last three games. Also, Oakland is allowing an average of 38.7 points in the first half, pegging them down at 328th overall.

Prediction: Green Bay
