The Eastern Washington Eagles and the Idaho State Bengals meet in college basketball action from the Reed Gym on Saturday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Eastern Washington is listed as a 5.5-point road favorite with the total for this game set at 143.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
Eastern Washington’s 81-68 win over Idaho State back on January 26th, 2023, made it four straight wins for Eastern Washington in this head-to-head matchup.
Eastern Washington is 11-1-1 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a losing record and 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall. Idaho State is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games against a team with a winning home record and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 home games against a team with a road winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games.
I’m sticking with Eastern Washington here. Neither team really has anything to play for, as Idaho State’s just trying to hold firm in the middle of the Big Sky, and Eastern Washington already has the regular season title and the top-seed in the conference tournament locked up, and the only thing they have to go for here is their unbeaten record in conference play. That being said, I think the Eagles are just the better team and I think Eastern Washington wants to go into the conference tournament with as much momentum as possible so I’ll lay it and play it with Eastern Washington here.
