Oakland Golden Grizzlies vs Milwaukee Panthers

Where: UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena

When: Saturday, January 18, 2020, 7:00 pm ET

We have a Horizon League matchup to consider for Saturday evening when the Oakland Golden Grizzlies meet the Milwaukee Panthers for an evening of Horizon League college hoops action. Oakland is 2-4 in the conference and enters this game hoping to end a one-game losing streak. Milwaukee is 3-3 in the conference standings and is working on a one-game winning streak when they host the Golden Grizzlies.

Golden Grizzlies Lose to Green Bay

Oakland is 2-4 in the conference and has an overall record of 7-12 this season. The Golden Grizzlies have lost four of its last five games and Saturday marks the end of a four-game road trip followed by a two-game homestand. Oakland is 2-7 this season on the road and is seventh in the conference standings.

The Golden Grizzlies score an average of 64 points while allowing 66.6 points per game. Oakland is shooting 42.4 percent from the field, 28.7 percent from downtown and 67.6 percent from the charity stripe this season.

Oakland has two players scoring in double figures and is led by sophomore guard Rashad Williams. The sophomore guard averages 16 points per game with four caroms and two assists. Williams and is drilling 25 percent of his three-point attempts and is coming off a 16 point, four-rebound night in the Golden Grizzlies road loss to Green Bay.

Panthers Lose to Detroit

Milwaukee is 3-3 in conference play and boasts an 8-10 overall record this season. The Panthers are 4-3 this season at home and have won three of their last five games. Saturday marks game two of a two-game homestand before road games against Youngstown State and Cleveland State.

The Panthers score an average of 72.6 points per game and allow 72.4 points per game this season. Milwaukee makes 41 percent of its field goal attempts, 32.7 percent of its triple tries with a 67.3 percent free-throw shooting percentage.

Milwaukee has four players scoring in double figures and is led by senior guard Darius Roy. Roy scores an average of 16.5 points per game with 4.5 caroms and 3.2 assists. Roy scored 24 points with six rebounds and five assists in the Panthers home loss to Detroit.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I will take Milwaukee in this matchup. These teams are fairly matched and I will side with the home team in this situation every single time. Milwaukee has a low turnover rate and is a much better three-point shooting team than Oakland is. The Panthers are also a better offensive rebounding team and those second-chance point opportunities will make the difference in this game. I will go with Milwaukee to beat Oakland on Saturday.

Prediction: Milwaukee

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

My math has this one ending at 135 points and that seems to fall a little bit on the high side. Neither team would be confused with being offensive-minded and I see a low scoring affair on Saturday. Milwaukee plays at a much faster tempo than Oakland does but the Golden Grizzlies have a bit more experience and will likely walk the ball up the floor. Neither team is very good at the foul line and I will play UNDER at 135 points and above in this matchup. 

Prediction: Under
