Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Milwaukee Panthers give up more than their share of points at an average of 73.3 points per game but they hold opponents to a field goal shooting percentage of just 40.6% which is 28th best in the country and a three-point shooting percentage of 30.6% which is 27th. Part of the reason they give up so many points is Milwaukee is 15th in adjusted tempo at 72.0 and that allows opponents to have more scoring opportunities. To compensate for that, Milwaukee is scoring an average of 78.0 points per game and has the 88th best field goal shooting percentage at 46.1%. Stetson's strength is long distance shooting with a three-point shooting percentage 39.1%, which is 10th best but faces a Panthers defense that is holding opponents to 30.6% three-point shooting which is 27th best. Stetson has failed to cover the spread in each of the last five against a team with a winning percentage above .600.
