Idaho is 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 road games while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. Omaha is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 11-3 in their last 14 home games.
I get the case to be made for either side here, but I’m looking at Omaha here. The Mavericks have been far more battle tested in the first two games of the season, even though they ended up on the wrong side of those games. Idaho got a nice win last time out, but the Mavericks playing stiff competition early on should serve them well in the step down here. Give me the Mavericks here.
