The Oakland Golden Grizzlies visit the Green Bay Phoenix in Horizon college basketball.

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies have not been looking like a team capable of winning the Horizon until recently with wins in four of five capped of by a 76-68 win at the Milwaukee Panthers as a 1.5 point favorite on Thursday. Oakland won the shooting battle 45.6%-38.6% and held a 19-8 margin at the foul line.

Oakland received 14 points and four yanks from Martez Walker on 4-11 shooting while Jalen Hayes and Isaiah Brock combined for 18 points with Brock hauling in eleven rebounds.

The Green Bay Phoenix are looking for a return to the top of the Horizon League and began their quest with a 95-83 victory versus the Detroit Titans as a 3.5 point home favorite. Both teams sank shots at around 43% with Green Bay totaling 12 more looks at the basket for a decisive five more field goals.

Oakland are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Horizon League and under is 6-2 in Oakland last 8 Saturday games and Oakland are 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 Saturday games. Over is 4-1 in Green Bay last 5 overall and under is 4-1 in Green Bay last 5 games following a straight up win.

The Golden Grizzlies seem to be coming around but Green Bay is still a mystery to me so I’m taking the points for now…

Pick:
Green Bay +10

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.
