Wright State vs Oakland Betting Prediction 

Oakland comes into this game on a four game winning streak and they are currently leading the Horizon League standings. The Golden Grizzlies have played very strong defense recently, allowing 63 points or fewer in their last four games. Wright State is 11-6 in the conference and they are in fourth place in the Horizon League. The Raiders have a very high powered offense and they are shooting over 53% from the field, but their defense is allowing over 80 points against per game. Oakland defeated Wright State by a score of 74-60 in their first meeting of the season and I like the Golden Grizzlies in this game as well.
