The Milwaukee Panthers and Youngstown State Penguins meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Beeghly Center.

The Milwaukee Panthers could use a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Milwaukee Panthers are averaging 69.4 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 75 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Darius Roy is averaging 15.7 points and 3.8 assists while DeAndre Abram is averaging 11.8 points and 7.3 rebounds. Jake Wright is grabbing two rebounds and Vance Johnson is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Milwaukee Panthers are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Panthers are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.8 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Panthers have lost their last four road games.

The Youngstown State Penguins could use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Youngstown State Penguins are averaging 72.5 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 79.5 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Darius Quisenberry is averaging 12.6  points and 3.5 assists while Garrett Covington is averaging 10.8 points and 4.1 rebounds. Jelani Simmons is grabbing 2.2 rebounds and Devin Morgan is dishing 2.6 assists. The Youngstown State Penguins are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 69.3 percent from the free throw line. The Youngstown State Penguins are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Youngstown State Penguins have lost their last six home games.

The Panthers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Horizon League and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Penguins are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Horizon League and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Panthers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Youngstown St and 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings. The under is 9-4 in Penguins last 13 overall. The under is 5-2 in Panthers last 7 road games.

The Youngstown State Penguins already beat the Milwaukee Panthers by 25 points on the road this season. The Milwaukee Panthers enter this game struggling to score and are losing by an average of 7.1 points on the road this season. Youngstown State hasn't played well at home, but it is 4-2 ATS at home this season and should have the edge regardless over a team it just waxed last month. The numbers aren't kind to either side in this matchup, but I'll side with the Penguins and the reasonable chalk based on the last meeting. 

Pick:
Youngstown State -4
