What to Know
The Utah Valley Wolverines will take on the Green Bay Phoenix at 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday at Montego Bay Convention Centre. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.
Utah Valley was just a bucket shy of a victory this past Friday and fell 73-72 to the Morgan State Bears. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for the Wolverines to swallow was that they had been favored by 10.5 points coming into the game.
Meanwhile, the contest between Green Bay and the Queens University Royals this past Friday was not particularly close, with Green Bay falling 81-65.
This next contest looks promising for Utah Valley, who are favored by a full 13.5 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
The losses put Utah Valley at 2-3 and the Phoenix at 0-4. A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Wolverines have only been able to knock down 40.60% percent of their shots, which is the 48th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Green Bay has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the 356th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 55.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
