Oakland is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 9-25 ATS in their last 34 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

I’m backing Oakland here. I love me some Youngstown State, as they were my preseason pick to win the Horizon League. However, I think this is just too many points to give up to an Oakland team that’s playing some of their best basketball of the season right now. I see Youngstown State winning, but I think Oakland covers. Give me the Golden Grizzlies and the points here.
