Against The Spread Pick
Northern Kentucky will look to stay in the Horizon League race as they make a visit to Green Bay for a clash with the Phoenix. The Norse looked overmatched in their previous game as Wright State rolled to an impressive 32-point victory. The Phoenix came up four points short in their last game, as they put up a tough fight against Youngstown State. Northern Kentucky is 5-1 ATS in their last six games. For Wisconsin-Green Bay covering the spread hasn’t been a common trend, as they are 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six. The Norse have won two of the last three meetings. The first meeting this season wasn’t what was expected, as the Phoenix were able to get a win at Northern Kentucky along with covering a +5.5 point spread. With this game being at Green Bay, it makes taking the Norse to cover the spread a bit tough. That being said, with it being at -3 points, leaning Northern Kentucky is worth it in this match-up.
Over Under Pick
The last three meetings have had very different outcomes in regards to points scored. Their first meeting this season was less than expected, as neither team could quite reach their scoring average. Northern Kentucky was held to 59 points, while Green Bay escaped with the win by scoring 73. For a team that is 8th nationally with an average over 80 points per game, that output was underwhelming. The two prior meetings each saw the winning team score at least 86 points. Northern Kentucky and Wisconsin-Green Bay know each other so well, which makes backing the over 154-total the smart move here.
