Idaho is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, and 1-4 against the spread following a win. North Dakota is 8-2-1 against the spread in their last 11 games, 6-2 against the spread in their last eight road games, and 0-4 against the spread following a game that they allowed more than 90 points.
Idaho isn’t getting a lot of respect here and I expect them to play hard but come up short as Callandret and Sanders both are out.
