The Green Bay Phoenix and the Youngstown State Penguins will meet up on the college basketball circuit Saturday.

Green Bay is currently sitting at 12-12 this year. The Phoenix dropped consecutive games to Northern Kentucky and Wright State, but have won their last two games versus Milwaukee and Cleveland State.

In the win over the Vikings, Green Bay’s top scorer was Sandy Cohen on 18 points, seven assists and six rebounds. Trevian Bell added 14 points and five rebounds for the Phoenix in that game as well.

Over on the Youngstown State side, they’re 9-16 this year. The Penguins are currently sitting on a three-game win streak, taking out Oakland, Detroit and Milwaukee in that time.

In the win over the Panthers, Youngstown State’s Devin Morgan led the team with 21 points, three rebounds and three assists. Naz Bohannon doubled up for the Penguins in that one with his 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The Phoenix are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 overall and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 versus the Horizon. Green Bay is 2-5 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

Meanwhile, the Penguins are 5-0 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 5-1 ATS in the last six Saturday games. Youngstown State is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 overall and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 versus the Horizon.

After a couple of uninspiring losses, the Phoenix have been playing much better in their last pair with a combined 172 points scored. Green Bay held the Vikings to just 65 points as well—Cleveland State isn’t that good of a team, but still.

All of that said, Youngstown State is on a nice run over their last three, and I think they’ll avenge the 99-93 Green Bay win the last time these teams met up. I’ll take the Penguins in what should be a good matchup.

Pick:
Youngstown State Penguins +1
