The Milwaukee Panthers (10-13, 5-6 CONF) and the UIC Flames (11-13, 6-5 CONF) will meet on Wednesday, February 6th for a Horizon League matchup at the Credit 1 Union Arena in Chicago, IL. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

Milwaukee is currently on a three-game losing streak with all three games being conference matchups. Milwaukee’s offense has struggled badly during this stretch, as they are only averaging 56.667 points per game in their losses. UIC has won two in a row in Horizon League play, defeating Youngstown State and Cleveland State both on the road. UIC is feeling much better after a bad start to the season in non-conference and conference play.

Milwaukee scores 71.2 points per game on only 40.4% FG shooting. This low FG% may indicate that Milwaukee is bound to start scoring more. Milwaukee allows 72.3 points per game, therefore they have a -1.1 scoring differential. Milwaukee also earns 36.9 rebounds, 12.0 assists, 3.3 blocks, and 5.9 steals per game. 

UIC is starting to put together more consistent showings on both offense and defense. Overall, they are scoring 68.0 points per game. UIC is also allowing 71.0 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -3 scoring differential. UIC also earns 35.8 rebounds, 14.3 assists, 4.2 blocks, and 5.4 steals per game. 

Milwaukee is 7-13-1 ATS this season and 4-5-1 ATS in their last eight games. Milwaukee is also 3-4-1 ATS on the road so far this season. UIC is 13-9-1 ATS this season and 6-3-1 ATS in their last ten games. UIC is also 4-6 ATS at home so far this season. 

I like the trend that UIC has been on in their most recent conference games. UIC has played well in the Horizon League, and a home game against Milwaukee seems feasible. I will take UIC and lay the small, 3.5 points at home.
