The Milwaukee Panthers and the Cleveland State Vikings meet in college basketball action from Wolstein Center on Saturday.
The Panthers come into this one at 10-10 on the year. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last six games, falling to Detroit while taking out IUPUI, UIC, Green Bay, Oakland and Youngstown State otherwise.
In the win over the Penguins, Milwaukee’s DeAndre Abram led the team with 19 points, 13 rebounds and two assists. Josh Thomas also doubled up there with 15 points, 11 rebounds and three assists.
Over on the Cleveland State side, they’re 7-14 this year. The Vikings have lost their last four straight games, dropping to Oakland, Wright State, Northern Kentucky and Green Bay in that time.
In the loss to the Phoenix, Cleveland State’s Craig Beaudion logged 26 points with five assists. Torrey Patton added 12 points with six rebounds, and Al Eichelberger had 10 points with three rebounds and one assist.
The under is 4-1 in the Vikings’ last five overall and they’re 15-7 ATS in the last 22 Saturday games. The over is 9-3 in Cleveland State’s last 12 home games and 15-7 in their last 22 Saturday games.
Meanwhile, the Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 overall. The over is 10-1 in Milwaukee’s last 11 overall and 6-0 in their last six road games.
Milwaukee’s offense has been rolling along pretty well over the last six games, with at least 73 points in five of those. The Panthers have given up some pretty big points totals on defense in that time, though; at least 73 in four of six.
As for Cleveland State, they had put up three straight with 62 or fewer points prior to their 74 versus Green Bay. I’m not too confident in the Vikings right now so I’m sticking with Milwaukee.
