Youngstown State vs. Green Bay Prediction

I’m on Youngstown State here. I know Green Bay needs this win more, but the Phoenix haven’t looked good in their last couple of games and it almost feels like this team is running out of steam. The Penguins have been pretty good in Horizon League play for the better part of the last couple of years and I think they get the job done in this game. The Penguins have revenge on the mind and I think they’re favored by this many on the road for a reason. Give me Youngstown State here.
