The Weber State Wildcats and the Montana Grizzlies meet in college basketball action from the Dahlberg Arena on Thursday night.

The Weber State Wildcats will try to rebound from a 67-57 loss to Indiana State last time out. Dillon Jones leads the Wildcats across the board in scoring, rebounding and assists with 14.7 PPG, 10 RPG and 3.9 APG while Steven Verplancken Jr. has 12.3 PPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Weber State so far this season. As a team, Weber State is averaging 67.4 PPG on 44.1% shooting from the field, 32.8% from three and 81.6% from the foul line this season.

The Montana Grizzlies will look to build on a 79-74 win over Northern Colorado last time out. Josh Bannan leads the Grizzlies in scoring and rebounding with 16.9 PPG and 8.4 RPG while also leading the Grizzlies in assists with 3.1 APG as well this season. Aanen Moody has 14.2 PPG while Dischon Thomas has 11.9 PPG with 5.2 RPG as well on the year. Brandon Whitney has 11.2 PPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Montana so far this season. As a team, Montana is averaging 70.1 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field, 36% from three and 77.1% from the foul line this season.

Weber State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall. Montana is 5-21 ATS in their last 26 games following an ATS win and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall.

I get the case to be made on either side in this game, but I’m going to take a shot on Weber State and the points. I just think this is a case of too many points as I think this is a 2-3 point game whichever way you slice it. Weber State doesn’t have the best road win-loss record, but they’ve been competitive on the road and I think they keep it close at the very least. Give me the points with Weber State.
