The Milwaukee Panthers won their 2nd straight game and improved to 5-2 on the season after defeating the IUPUI Jaguars, 71-63, this past Saturday. Milwaukee was outstanding on the offensive end against IUPUI and was able to take the lead for good after a DeAndre Gholston jumper gave Milwaukee a 58-57 lead with 6:48 left in regulation. Milwaukee shot 55.8% from the field and 28.6% from beyond the arc while IUPUI shot 40.7% from the field and 40.0% from beyond the arc.

The Mastodons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall, however, are just 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games.

Milwaukee was able to pick up a couple of nice wins against IUPUI, however, despite their winning record, I just don’t think the Panthers team is as good defensively as their currently statistics might say. Purdue Fort Wayne can struggle defensively, however, their offense is very good as they come into this game ranked 75th in scoring offense, 11th in FG%, & 4th in 3P-FG% and as I think the Mastodons will be able to keep this one close, I think the play here is to take Purdue Fort Wayne and the points.
