Milwaukee won both regular season matchups with Cleveland State by scores of 68-64 and 81-72. Milwaukee has scored 87, 81, and 96 points in their last three games and they are averaging 78.3 points per game. The Panthers defense has struggled throughout the season and is allowing 73.2 points against per game. Cleveland State is a better defensive team, but they are only scoring 71.3 points per game on the offensive end of the court. Milwaukee cruised to a victory in their last game, while Cleveland State was taken to overtime by Robert Morris. I like Milwaukee in this game.
