The Oakland Golden Grizzlies and the Northern Kentucky Norse meet in college basketball action from BB&T Arena on Thursday.
Oakland enters this game at 8-15 so far. After a four-game losing streak versus Green Bay, Milwaukee, UIC and IUPUI the Grizzlies won their last outing versus Detroit on Friday.
In the win over the Titans, Oakland’s Rashad Williams led the way on 37 points with three rebounds. Xavier Hill-Mais added 12 points and nine boards there, and Brad Brechting had 11 points with 12 rebounds.
Over on the Northern Kentucky side, they’re 16-7 overall. Since their last loss to Wright State, the Norse have managed consecutive victories over Green Bay and Milwaukee.
In the win over the Panthers, Northern Kentucky’s Tyler Sharpe led the team with 18 points, three rebounds and one assists. Jalen Tate had a nice line there also with 16 points, five assists and nine rebounds.
The Norse are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 5-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win. Northern Kentucky is 7-1 ATS in their last eight overall and the under is 14-6 in their last 20 Thursday games.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five overall. Oakland is 1-3-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and the under is 26-11-1 in their last 38 overall.
Oakland was still scoring reasonably well during their four-game losing streak, posting 68 versus Milwaukee and 85 versus IUPUI. The Grizzlies’ downfall there was allowing at least 73 points in each of the games.
As for Northern Kentucky, outside of the 32-point blowout loss to Wright State there’s not much to complain about. The Norse have put up at least 71 points in four of their last five wins. I can’t find too many reasons not to take Northern Kentucky here.
