Green Bay has struggled defensively, holding opponents to 80.2 points per game. They gave up 74 points in their last game and will need to play much better if they want to beat the Penguins.

Penguins Going For Third Win In Seven Games

The Penguins haven’t played well over the last week and have lost three consecutive games. They will be trying to snap their three-game losing streak and pick up their third win in their last seven games when they play the Phoenix on Saturday.

Youngstown State is averaging 70.7 points per game. The team is shooting 41 percent from the field and 29 percent from three-point range. They finished with 73 points in their last game and will need another solid offensive performance if they want to beat the Phoenix.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Phoenix are a very good offensive team, averaging 81.5 points per game. The team hasn’t played as well in recent games, averaging 77 points per game and will struggle to score against the Penguins, who are giving up 61.8 points per game in their last nine home games. The Penguins are averaging 70.7 points per game, but they won’t have any trouble scoring against the Phoenix, who have one of the worst defenses in the country and are giving up 80.2 points per game. With the Penguins winning three of the last five meetings between the two teams, Youngstown State is the best bet.

Prediction: Youngstown State Penguins

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Penguins have played well defensively, especially at home where they are holding opponents to 61.8 points per game. Even though they have played well at home, they will have a hard time keeping the Phoenix, who are averaging 81.5 points per game, under 70 points in this game. The Phoenix haven’t played well on the defensive end, giving up 80.2 points per game. With the team giving up at least 70 points in four of their last five games, it is safe to assume that the Penguins will go over their season average in this game, which should help push the score over the total. The Penguins and Phoenix have played over the total in four of their last five meetings.

Prediction: Over

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Phoenix will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Penguins in the first half of their last three games, averaging 34 points per game while the Penguins averaged 31 points per game.

Prediction: Green Bay Phoenix

Half-Time Total Bet

Insiders Status:
