What to Know
The Northern Kentucky Norse will play host again and welcome the Green Bay Phoenix to Truist Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Thursday. The Norse will be strutting in after a victory while Green Bay will be stumbling in from a defeat.
NKU took their contest against the PFW Mastodons on Saturday by a conclusive 74-54 score. The oddsmakers were on NKU's side, but they didn't give the team enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide.
Meanwhile, it's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 72-38, which was the final score in Green Bay's tilt against the Robert Morris Colonials on Saturday.
This next game looks promising for NKU, who are favored by a full 17 points. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
NKU is now 13-8 while the Phoenix sit at 2-19. The Norse are 7-5 after wins this year, and Green Bay is 2-16 after losses.
