IUPUI vs Green Bay Prediction & Pick

There's no denying that both of these teams are in desperate need of a momentous win. IUPUI and Green Bay both rank outside the top 350 NCAA teams in points per game as well as assists per game. On defense, each squad is giving up at least 75.0 points per game, which ranks outside the top 300.

One team has to emerge victorious on Monday, though, and I'll give the edge to the home team. The Phoenix are averaging 65.5 points per home game on the year, while the Jaguars are putting up just 58.1 points per road game. Green Bay also averages a full 2.0 less turnovers per game than IUPUI.

It's worth pointing out that Green Bay is 4-1 straight up in its last five games against IUPUI as well.

Final Score Prediction: IUPUI: 60 | Green Bay: 70

IUPUI vs Green Bay Betting Trends

- IUPUI is 2-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games.
- The total has hit the under in five of IUPUI's last seven games.
- Green Bay is 4-1 straight up in its last five games against IUPUI.
- The total has hit the over in five of Green Bay's last six games.

IUPUI vs Green Bay Best Bet

The Phoenix haven't played since Thursday, meaning they have the rest advantage and will also be playing in front of their own fans. Zae Blake, Clarence Cummings II and Cade Meyer are each averaging over 9.0 points per game. That gives Green Bay options on the offensive end of the court.

Backing a winless team to cover a 6.5-point spread is always a risky move, but Green Bay is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games against IUPUI. The favorite has covered the spread in four of the last five head-to-head matchups between these teams, too. It's the best bet to make.

Bet: Green Bay Phoenix -6.5 (-118)
