Randy’s Free Pick
The Montana State Bobcats have been the better, more consistent team this season, but Sacramento State has more than held its own as well. Yes, Sacramento State doesn't have the offensive firepower of a Montana State, but it's not a bad team and does win at home by an average of 10.1 points while holding teams under 40 percent shooting. Give me the bucket.
