The IUPUI Jaguars and Milwaukee Panthers meet Friday in college basketball action at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.

The IUPUI Jaguars need a win to get back to a .500 record. The IUPUI Jaguars are averaging 60 points on 38.4 percent shooting and allowing 63.3 points on 42.3 percent shooting. Marcus Burk is averaging 17 points and 1.3 assists while Azariah Seay is averaging 9.7 points and 2.3 rebounds. Elyjah Goss is dishing one assist and Elyjah Goss is grabbing three rebounds.

The Panthers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 13-3 in Jaguars last 16 road games. The under is 5-2 in Panthers last 7 overall. The underdog is 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Milwaukee Panthers aren't worldbeaters, but they're in much better form than their opponent here. The IUPUI Jaguars are one of the worst offensive teams in the country and playing an early game on the road usually doesn't help matters. Once the IUPUI Jaguars can't hit shots, things could get out of hand rather quickly. The Milwaukee Panthers have at least won three of their last four games and covered four of their last five games. I'll lean toward Milwaukee at home and the reasonable chalk.
