1* Oakland (3:00 ET): Judging by the total here, it should be points a plenty as Green Bay & Oakland hook for a second time this season in Horizon League action. The first meeting was certainly one to remember. Oakland prevailed 111-95 and no, there was no OT. Off a rare loss & catching the the GB's playing a 5th straight road game, take 'em again.
Things had been going quite well for the Golden Grizzlies in conference play. That was until running into Milwaukee on Thursday. There, they lost 93-85 (as 6.5-point favorites) as despite the high score, they actually didn't shoot the ball well (just 39.5 percent). But making shots clearly was no issue in the first meeting w/ Green Bay as Oakland finished at 57.1 percent en route to a historic offensive performance. While certainly a nadir defensively, GB has had issues all year at that end of the floor. They come into Saturday giving up 81.8 PPG for the year.
Green Bay is off a minor upset, 86-85 in Detroit as two-point dogs. But as mentioned above, this will be the Phoenix's FIFTH straight road game, not to mention second in three days. With Oakland playing a second straight time at home, it'a a clear advantage for them and note the Golden Grizzlies are a perfect 5-0 ATS in Saturday games this season. My recommendation here would be to lay the points. 1* Oakland
