Weber State is 18-5 ATS in their last 23 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games following a double-digit home loss. Eastern Washington is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 35-16 ATS in their last 51 gaes overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.
I get the case to be made either way here, but as tempting as the points with Eastern Washington as a home dog are, the Eagles are much sexier if you will on the road. Weber State’s been money on the road this season and have emerged as the team to beat in the Big Sky this season. Give me the Wildcats laying the points on the road this season.
