The 2022-23 college basketball season continues on Friday with an exciting matchup between the Green Bay Phoenix and Stanford Cardinal. Green Bay enters fresh off a disappointing 82-61 loss to St. Thomas. Sophomore Cade Meyer provided the only highlights with his 24 points and 7 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Stanford has dropped each of its last three games, including a 68-64 loss to Arizona State on Sunday. Eight different Cardinal players scored at least one bucket, led by Spencer Jones' 13 points. Allowing 20 free throw attempts to the Sun Devils proved to make a crucial difference.

Green Bay vs Stanford Prediction & Pick

There isn't much positivity surrounding this Green Bay team right now and for good reason. It's a team that ranks outside the top 330 in both offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency this year. The Phoenix also log just 27.6 rebounds per game, which is the fourth-lowest mark in the entire country.

That bodes well for Stanford's chances of ending its losing streak tonight. Head coach Jerdo Haase's team ranks tied for 87th in rebounds per game (37.1), meaning it has a shot to dominate the boards on Friday. Stanford has relied on a defense that allows only 65.7 points per game to stay competitive.

Green Bay hasn't won a road game all season and Stanford has yet to lose a game in which it was favored. Back the home squad.

Final Score Prediction: Green Bay: 56 | Stanford: 75

Green Bay vs Stanford Betting Trends

- Green Bay is 0-6 straight up in its last six away games.

- The total has hit the under in six of Stanford's last eight games.

Green Bay vs Stanford Best Bet

There's no reason Stanford should be favored by more than 24 points against any team. The Cardinal have only won three games in 2022 and just one of those victories came by a margin of more than 10 points. This is also a textbook look-ahead spot for a Stanford team that faces No. 7 Texas on Sunday.

Haase will likely opt to rest his star players if his squad can jump out to a big lead in this one and keep them fresh for the Longhorns. Overall, Stanford is 1-6 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven home games and 3-6 ATS in its last nine games overall. That doesn't provide much confidence for bettors.

Bet: Green Bay Phoenix +24.5 (-118)
