The Oakland Golden Grizzlies (5-4) will visit the Bowling Green Falcons (6-2) at the Stroh Center. Oakland is coming off a 10-point victory on the road against Western Michigan. Xavier Hill-Mais scored 26 points, nine rebounds, and four assists to lead Oakland past Western Michigan. With this game, Hill-Mais surpassed 1,000 career points at Oakland. Oakland became the first team to beat Western Michigan on the road this season.

Oakland doesn’t match up very well with Bowling Green. They score 64.2 points per game and allow 63 points per game. On the other hand, Bowling Green averages 80 points per contest and allows 73.9. Oakland will have to keep up with Bowling Green’s pace if they want to win this game.

The Falcons are led by Justin Turner, who is averaging 19 points per game on 50 percent shooting from the field. He also leads the team in assists with 4.2 per game. Bowling Green will play their first game in December as they only have four games scheduled in December this year.

The last game Bowling Green has played was back on November 30th against Dartmouth, where they won at home, 76-69. They also have a more notable win against Cincinnati in the Paradise Jam, winning 91-84 in an overtime game. That’s the pace I’m talking about. They’re capable of scoring a ton of points on any given night.

Golden Grizzlies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games.

Falcons are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Under is 5-0 in Golden Grizzlies last 5 games following a straight up win.

Over is 4-0 in Falcons last 4 Saturday games.

This is a match-up that depends on which team dictates how the game plays out. If Oakland can settle down and limit possessions, they’ll win. But if Bowling Green can run up-tempo and score 80 or more, there’s no way Oakland can stick with it. Final Score Predictions: Bowling Green wins and covers ATS, 80-72.
