Randy’s Free Pick
The Montana State Bobcats are the better side, they've proven they can win on the road, and they're 9-3-1 ATS on the road. The Idaho State Bengals are a competitive bad team, but it's the fact they're a bad team overall that makes them hard to get behind against the better clubs in this conference. The line is reasonable. Give me the Bobcats.
