Matchup History

Idaho State is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Monday games while the over is 20-8 in their last 28 road games. Northern Colorado is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.


I’m backing Northern Colorado here. The Bears haven’t had a ton of success in a lot of their recent games, but they do play their much better basketball at home and scoring hasn’t been an issue for the Bears, it’s been the defense. I just don’t see Idaho State posing a threat to Northern Colorado’s defense here so give me the Bears at home in this one.
