The Montana Grizzlies and the North Dakota Fighting Hawks meet in college basketball action from the Betty Engelstad Center on Monday night.

The Montana Grizzlies will look to bounce back from a 66-49 loss at the hands of Mississippi State in their last game. Derrick Carter-Hollinger and Josh Bannan share the team lead for Montana with 10.5 PPG apiece, with Bannan leading Montana with 6.4 RPG as well. Cameron Parker also has a team-high 4 APG as well this season for the Grizzlies. As a team, Montana is averaging 61.5 PPG on 39.3% shooting from the field, 32.6% from three and 69% from the foul line while allowing 56.5 PPG on 38.3% shooting from the field, and 32.6% from three this season.

The North Dakota Fighting Hawks will be looking to rebound from a 75-60 loss at the hands of Milwaukee to start their season. Paul Bruns leads North Dakota with 13 PPG and 5 RPG while Ethan Igbanugo has 11 PPG as the lone pair of double-digit scorers for North Dakota through their first game of the season. Brian Mathews had a team-high 7 rebounds and Caleb Nero dished out a team-high 3 assists in the opener as well.

Montana is 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games as a favorite while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a road favorite. North Dakota is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games following a loss.

I get the allure of a home dog in most spots, but the Fighting Hawks are a team on my list of teams that I’m going to see struggle a fair bit this season. Montana has been a hard team to figure out, but I think they’re the better team side here, so I’ll be on the Grizzlies laying the points here.
