The Idaho Vandals and the North Dakota State Bison meet in college basketball action from the Scheels Center on Saturday night.

The Idaho Vandals come into this game looking to bounce back from a 67-63 loss to Cal Poly last time out. Trevante Anderson leads the Vandals in scoring and assists with 13.8 PPG and 3.3 APG while also logging 3.8 RPG. Mikey Dixon has 12.8 PPG while Philip Pepple Jr. has 5.3 RPG as well this season. As a team, Idaho is averaging 69.2 PPG on 39.9% shooting from the field, 35.6% from three and 0.4% from the foul line while allowing 84.7 PG on 49.5% shooting from the field and 33% from three this season.

The North Dakota State Bison will try to build on a 54-53 win over Tarleton State lasttime out. Rocky Kreuser leads the Bison in scoring and rebounding with 14.2 PPG and 8.2 RPG while Jarius Cook has 10.4 PPG and Grant Nelson’s got 10.2 PPG with 6.6 RPG as well this season. Tyree Eady’s also chipped in a team-high 2.8 APG for the Bison this season. As a team, North Dakota State is averaging 61.8 PPG on 37.4% shooting from the field, 30.9% from three and 72.7% from the foul line while allowing 63 PPG on 41.5% shooting from the field and 33.7% from three this season.

Idaho is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games. North Dakota State is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games as a favorite.

I get the Bison being favored at home, but realistically, I can’t lay almost 20 points with the Bison even against the Vandals. The Bison just aren’t a high scoring team to being with and now the added have to deal with a slow-paced Idaho team that’s likely going to limit the amount of possessions that North Dakota State has and keeps this one within the number. Give me Idaho and the points in this one.
