The Green Bay Phoenix and Bowling Green Falcons meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Stroh Center.

The Green Bay Phoenix look for a big victory after winning four of their last five gams. The Green Bay Phoenix are averaging 86.5 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 78.9 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Sandy Cohen III is averaging 14.4 points and 6.6 rebounds while JayQuan McCloud is averaging 14.3 points and 2.5 rebounds. Cody Schwartz is grabbing 3.8 rebounds and Manny Patterson is dishing one assist. The Green Bay Phoenix are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 63.8 percent from the free throw line. The Green Bay Phoenix are allowing 29.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.5 rebounds per game. The Green Bay Phoenix have lost two of their last three road games.

The Bowling Green Falcons need a big victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Bowling Green Falcons are averaging 73.7 points on 42.3 percent shooting and allowing 73.1 points on 40.7 percent shooting. Justin Turner is averaging 18.2 points and three assists while Demajeo Wiggins is averaging 15.3 points and 12.2 rebounds. Dylan Frye is the third double-digit scorer and Antwon Lillard is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Bowling Green Falcons are shooting 28.9 percent from beyond the arc and 62.9 percent from the free throw line. The Bowling Green Falcons are allowing 37.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game. The Bowling Green Falcons have won all three home games this season.

The Phoenix are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games, 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Falcons are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Falcons last 4 overall. The over is 11-2 in Phoenix last 13 overall.

The Green Bay Phoenix are playing better basketball right now, but they've been shaky on the road where that offense is shooting under 43 percent from the field. The Bowling Green Falcons have played their best at home where they're outscoring teams by 12.5 points and holding teams under 40 percent shooting. With a small line, I'm going to give Bowling Green the edge with the way the Falcons have played at home this season.

Pick:
Bowling Green Falcons -2.5
