The Oakland Grizzlies and the Milwaukee Panthers will match up in college basketball action on Saturday.

Oakland comes into this game with an 11-16 record overall. The Grizzlies have lost four of their last five games, dropping to Youngstown State, Wright State, Northern Kentucky and Green Bay in that time.

In the loss to the Phoenix, Oakland’s lead scorer was Brad Brechting, who doubled up on 15 points, 15 rebounds and one assist. The only other Grizzlies player in double-figures there was Xavier Hill-Mais, with 14 points and nine boards.

Over on the Milwaukee side, they’re 9-17 this season. The Panthers have lost their last six straight games, falling to Wright State, Northern Kentucky, Green Bay, Youngstown State, Cleveland State and Detroit in that time.

In the loss to the Titans, Milwaukee guard DeAndre Abram led the way on 28 points with six rebounds and one assist. Darius Roy added 16 points and six assists for the Panthers there, and Amir Allen chipped in 14 points.

Oakland is 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 9-21 ATS in their last 30 after an ATS loss. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the Horizon League.

Meanwhile, the Panthers are 5-1 ATS in their last six after an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in the last five versus a team with a losing straight-up record. The under is 16-6 in Milwaukee’s last 22 Saturday games and the over is 5-2 in the last seven home games versus a team with a losing road record.

Oakland’s offense has taken a nosedive over their last three games, as they haven’t scored more than 64 points in any of those outings and put up a combined total of just 180 across that trio.

Milwaukee has been scoring better comparatively speaking, but they’re still getting drilled on the final tallies. The Panthers gave up 90 points to Detroit, 90 to Green Bay, 78 to Cleveland State, etc.

I don’t like either one of these teams right now and neither is great ATS lately. I’m going to take the Panthers to cover at home, but otherwise staying away.
