While not quite a landslide, the game between Illinois-Chicago and the Green Bay Phoenix this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as the Flames wrapped it up with a 78-64 victory on the road.

Meanwhile, MSU strolled past the Oakland Golden Grizzlies with points to spare on Sunday, taking the matchup 76-64.

Illinois-Chicago is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
