Will update with trends once they're released.
Both of these teams are playing subpar basketball, so this is a spot where I usually just take the points and hope for the best. However, the Idaho State Bengals haven't won a game in over a month and lose on the road by an average of 8.6 points while shooting 43 percent from the field. The Weber State Wildcats win at home by an average of 12.8 points while shooting 49.4 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three. The only reason to consider Idaho State is because the Bengals are 9-4 against the spread on the road. Other than that, this should be a comfortable home win for Weber State.
