Analysis

I'm playing on OAKLAND (2* VIOLATOR). Though it wasn't quite enough to cover the large number, the Golden Grizzlies snapped a 3-game losing streak last time out, knocking off Youngstown State by a convincing 95-82 margin. That double-digit win had been preceded by three consecutive close losses. That skid in the rear-view mirror, some positive momentum in their corner and stepping down in class to face a Cleveland State team which is winless on the road, I expect the Golden Grizzlies to deliver a blowout. Since a 50-point loss on 12/29, the Vikings have played four very close games in a row, losing three of them. Their last defeat was particularly painful, as they lost by a single point vs. Detroit. Those type of losses can take a toll. Its also worth mentioning that each previous time Cleveland State played the second of b2b road games, they lost by double-digits. Those defeats came by 32, 11 and 19 points, respectively. More of the same on Friday night.
