The Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Panthers last 7 overall and the under is 10-4 in Jaguars last 14 overall.
These teams have a history of playing close games and the meeting last month was decided by just one point. However, the IUPUI Jaguars are just in awful form right now, as they're not winning, not covering and are being outscored by 13 points on the road this season. The Milwaukee Panthers have been sharp defensively as of late, allowing under 41 percent shooting in their last five games and have been covering machines all month long. Milwaukee is also a decent 4-2 ATS this season when favored by at least eight points. Give me the home team by double digits.
