Wisconsin-Milwaukee @ Bowling Green
Current Records: Wisconsin-Milwaukee 1-3; Bowling Green 1-3
What to Know
The Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers will take on the Bowling Green Falcons at 2:30 p.m. ET Tuesday at Suncoast Credit Union Arena. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.
A victory for Wisconsin-Milwaukee just wasn't in the stars last Thursday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They were completely outmatched by the Florida Gators on the road and fell 81-45.
Meanwhile, Bowling Green was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Friday as they fell 90-84 to the Norfolk State Spartans.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Panthers are expected to win a tight contest. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-3. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Wisconsin-Milwaukee is 50th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 63.7 on average. Bowling Green has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 27th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 79.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
