The Line: Wisconsin-Green Bay Phoenix -8.5 -- Over/Under: 150
The Cleveland State Vikings and the Green Bay Phoenix meet in college basketball action from Kress Events Center on Saturday.
Cleveland State enters this one at 11-19 on the year. In the last four games, Cleveland State is 2-2, with losses to Northern Kentucky and Wright State between wins over Detroit and Milwaukee.
In the win over Milwaukee, Cleveland State’s Al Eichelberger led the team on 20 points, three rebounds and three assists. Jaalam Hill added 15 points and five rebounds there, and Torrey Patton had 15 points, six rebounds and three assists for Cleveland State.
Over on the Green Bay side, they’re 15-15 this season. In the last four games, Green Bay is 3-1, falling to Oakland and beating Milwaukee, Detroit and Youngstown State otherwise.
In the win over Youngstown State, Green Bay’s leading scorer was JayQuan McCloud with 23 points, four rebounds and four assists. Kameron Hankerson added 17 points with seven assists and three rebounds there, and Amari Davis had 15 points with eight rebounds and two assists.
Green Bay is 1-4 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 home games. Green Bay is 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 overall.
Meanwhile, Cleveland State is 3-1-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games. Cleveland State is 4-1 ATS in their last five overall and the over is 4-1 in their last five overall.
Cleveland State has been fairly consistent with their points totals lately; they usually finish in the 65-75 points range, and their successes win/loss wise hinge on how well they control the other team. Cleveland State has been hit and miss lately on that part of it.
In any case, Green Bay is a solid scoring team themselves, and the last time these teams met up it was a 78-74 Green Bay road victory. This one should be a high-scoring affair as well, and I like Green Bay to bang out a cover in a fast-paced and exciting game.
