The Montana State Bobcats head into this game playing bad basketball, and that's not going to improve on the road where they lose by an average of 8.1 points while shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from deep. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks win at home by an average of 7.2 points while shooting 46.8 percent from the field. Both clubs are struggling as of late and neither team is great at covering numbers, so I'll lay the reasonable number with Northern Arizona at home just because of the one sided home / road splits.
