Rotation # 745
Detroit -7 over IUPUI (win)
Mike Davis is a big-name coach from his years at Indiana, and slowly he is making this team competitive. IUPUI has a new coach in Matt Crenshaw coaching in his first season ever. The Jaguars are not a good shooting team, which shows in the Vegas line tonight. Detroit is winless on the year yet are big road favorites. Mike Davis scheduled tough teams to start the year as the Titans had one of America’s most demanding non-conference schedules. I believe the robust competition will help Detroit in Horizon League play this year. IUPUI doesn’t have the offensive shooting to win many league games this year. Take Detroit.

Rotation # 755
Robert Morris +1.5 over Green Bay (loss)
Robert Morris joined the Horizon conference last year and struggled. Still, they hit the transfer game very hard this offseason and brought in blue-chip players from more prominent conferences that should dominate on this level. Green Bay lost most of their scoring power from last year and should struggle again early this year. Look for transfers like Jaron Williams and Rasheem Dunn to get massive additions for this team. Andrew Toole is ready to take the next step with his program as he enters year 12 as head coach. This team should score a few upsets this year. Take Robert Morris.

Rotation # 769
Southern Utah -5.5 over Eastern Washington (win)
Eastern Washington lost their top 7 players from last year, and their coach Shantay Legans took the job at Portland. The Eagles bring in a 32-year-old rookie coach and many freshmen and junior college players. Last year, Southern Utah was the best team in the big sky, and they returned their top five players from a season ago. Todd Simon is more familiar as a head coach with his players and should start conference play with a big road win. John Knight and Dre Martin are terrific guards that should take this game over. Take Southern Utah.
