In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Oakland at Michigan State.
The Oakland Golden Grizzlies are 4-8 on the season and they are currently in a slump, losing 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 76.7 points per game on 45.4% shooting from the floor while allowing 82 points on 51.7% shooting. Xavier Hill-Mais is the best player on the team, averaging 22.8 points per game and 6.4 rebounds while Jaevin Cumberland is the only other player averaging double digits in scoring with 16.3 per game.
The Michigan State Spartans are clearly the better team and they are also 9-2 on the year. They are on a 3-game winning streak at the moment and they are averaging 86 points per game on nearly 50% shooting while allowing just 69.1 points. They have many players that can hurt you offensively. Nick Ward and Joshua Langford are both averaging 16+ points per game while Cassius Winston is the third double-digit scorer.
Oakland played against some great teams earlier this year such as UNLV, Xavier and Georgia. They lost by an average of 8 points against them. I’m sure that Michigan State will win by more than 8, however, I do not believe that they will be able to cover the spread.
