ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably stick with Wright State in this one. The line's probably a little too thick to mess with, though. These teams met up once already on January 12 at Resch Center. That one turned into a 99-67 blowout win for the Raiders thanks to 57 second-half points. The Raiders are just 2-2 since then but they’ve maintained a nice scoring pace. As for Green Bay, they’ve got just 88 combined points over their last two outings. I’m thinking this rematch will be similar to the last game: a blowout win for Wright State.
