Horizon college basketball action pits the Oakland Golden Grizzlies against the Indiana-Purdue Jaguars.

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies are gunning for a third straight conference win after downing Detroit 79-73 as a one point road dog on Saturday.

Oakland took a six point lead in to the break and traded baskets over the final 20 minutes behind 50.9% marksmanship and nine long balls.

Jaevin Cumberland was the Golden Grizzlies top gun with 24 points with Xavier Hill-Mais adding 22 points, five pulls and three assists.

Brad Brechting and Karmari Newman gave Oakland eight points and nine rebounds apiece followed by Tray Maddox Jr. with seven points.

The Indiana-Purdue Jaguars have dropped two of three after a 64-57 defeat to Milwaukee on Saturday as a 3.5 point road favorite.

Indian-Purdue  saw  the Panthers  pull  away  late with  a  42-36 second half run with only 35.7% shooting doing  the team in.

Camron Justice was the Jaguars top offensive option with 17 points and four pulls while DJ McCall added 13 points and five boards.

IUPUI received eight points and four helpers from Jaylen Minnett followed by Evan Hall with six points, five rebounds and three assists.

Oakland Golden Grizzlies are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games and are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a ATS win and  are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 vs. Horizon League. Indiana-Purdue Jaguars are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss and  are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. Under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Indiana – Purdue and home team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

I think these teams are on equal footing so that makes the points inviting…

Pick:
Oakland +5.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
