The Green Bay Phoenix and the Stanford Cardinal meet in college basketball action from the Maples Pavilion on Friday night.
The Green Bay Phoenix will look to bounce back from an 82-61 loss to St. Thomas last time out. Cade Meyer leads the Phoenix in scoring and rebounding with 12.2 PPG and 3.5 RPG while Zae Blake has 10.5 PPG with a team-high 2.7 APG to lead the Phoenix in assists and to cap off the pair of double-digit scorers for Green Bay up to this point in the season. As a team, Green Bay is averaging 59.4 PPG on 41.2% shooting from the field, 25.4% from three and 70% from the foul line this season.
The Stanford Cardinal will try to snap a three-game losing skid after a 68-64 loss to Arizona State last time out. Spencer Jones leads the Cardinal in scoring with 11.9 PPG and 4.1 RPG while Harrison Ingram has 10.1 PPG with 4.9 RPG and a team-high 3.2 APG to lead Stanford in assists this season. Michael Jones has 10.4 PPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Stanford up to this point in the season while Maxime Reynaud has a team-high 5.6 RPG to lead Stanford in rebounding so far this season. As a team, Stanford is averaging 66.2 PPG on 41.8% shooting from the field, 28.2% from three and 69.9% from the foul line this season.
Green Bay is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Friday games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS loss. Stanford is 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.
I get the reasoning for backing either side in this game, but as bad as Green Bay’s been, I’m not laying this many points with a Stanford team that’s 312th in the country in scoring. On the other side, I don’t trust Green Bay for much offensively either, so I’m looking firmly at the under in this one. This just sets up to be a low-scoring game that hangs around the 110s or 120s in the end, so give me the under here.
