IUPUI has been consistently ranked between 350 to 358 out of 358 D1 NCAAB teams in scoring in the last three years. The last time IUPUI had a win on the road against Milwaukee was February 16, 2018, 76-71. IUPUI has lost six straight road games to Milwaukee. Last January 15, 2022, IUPUI lost 89-54 (by 35 pts). How bad is it? In the last 31 games (anywhere) vs D1 opponents IUPUI is 1-31 and they have lost 10-in-a-row. The only win came against Robert Morris ON THE ROAD 66-56! In those 31 games IUPUI averages 52 scoring, allows 72 with totals of 125 and the average margin of victory is by 20 points. Against conference teams it changes little. They score 53, allow 71 for totals of 124 and margin of victory is 18 points.
Milwaukee’s not a good team, but they aren’t close to being like IUPUI. Since January 1, 2022, Milwaukee is 8-13 against conference opponents (anywhere) In those games they average 66 scoring, allow 71 with totals of 137. At home vs conference opponents, they are 4-6. In the four wins they scored 73 allowed 58 with totals of 129 (margin is 15 points).
The current line today is -16 Milwaukee and O/U 136, Friday night the line was -18 and 136.5. What we do know is that IUPUI can’t and won’t win this game and they struggle to score above 60 points. The one team that is “exactly” like IUPUI in every way is UW-Green Bay. Only two days earlier Milwaukee went on the road and beat UWG 81-67 (148 totals). Tonight, I see a Milwaukee win 75-55 (130) by 20-points.
FINAL Milwaukee 74 - IUPUI 61
