Oregon bounced back with a nice win against Syracuse after losing to Iowa and has to be excited about this season with the additional of Bol Bol in the lineup who has been absolutely dominant so far this season. Green Bay picked up only 13 wins last season however, the Phoenix have a solid one-two punch in Sandy Cohen III & JayQuan McCloud and has been solid on the offensive end this season as they rank t-39th in scoring offense and t-58th in assists per game. Playing at Matthew Knight Arena is always a challenge however, Green Bay played the same Iowa team that just beat Oregon tough on the road this season (93-82 loss) and as they’ve been solid ATS on the road, I think Phoenix will do enough to cover with this many points. Take Green Bay and the points.
