The Bears are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 16-6 ATS in their last 22 vs. Big Sky and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games, 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and 6-18 ATS in their last 24 games overall.

The home team has won seven of the last nine meetings between Northern Colorado and Eastern Washington. That's key in pretty much a pick em game, but the Eastern Washington Eagles have been very untrustworthy this season and lost to Northern Colorado by 12 points last month. The Northern Colorado Bears have shown all season long they can win on the road, and they enter this contest allowing 38.7 percent shooting and winning by 12.8 points in their last five games. I'm backing the road team in this toss-up contest.
