The Weber State Wildcats and the Idaho State Bengals meet in Big Sky college basketball action from the Holt Arena on Monday night.

The Weber State Wildcats will look to rebound from back-to-back losses after an 85-61 loss to Northern Colorado last time out. Jerrick Harding led the Wildcats with 15 points on 6 of 12 shooting with 3 threes while Zach Braxton and Israel Barnes each had 11 points, with Braxton shooting 4 of 6 with 5 rebounds while Barnes had a team-high 6 rebounds. Cody John added 7 points and a team-high 5 assists as well in the losing effort. Harding leads Weber State in scoring with 22 points per game while John leads the Wildcats in assists with 2.2 assists per game and Brekkott Chapman leads Weber State in rebounding with 9.1 rebounds per game this season. As a team, Weber State is averaging 80.1 points per game on 48.1% shooting from the field, 36.6% from behind the arc and 75.1% from the foul line this season.

The Idaho State Bengals will be out to snap a 5-game losing streak after a 71-62 loss to Northern Colorado last time out. Alonzo Walker and Kelvin Jones tied for the team-high with 14 points, with Jones shooting 7 of 10 from the floor with 4 blocks while Walker shot 6 of 7 from the field. Brandon Boyd added 10 points with 5 rebounds to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Idaho State in the loss. Chier Maker added 5 rebounds of his own as well in the losing effort. Boyd leads Idaho state with an average of 14.8 points and 3.7 assists per game while Maker leads the Bengals in rebounding with 6.7 rebounds per game this season. As a team, Idaho State is averaging 73.4 points per game on 44.7% shooting from the field, 37.2% from behind the arc and 72.9% from the foul line this season.

Weber State is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 35-16 in their last 51 road games. Idaho State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games. Weber State is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

Road favorites haven’t been kind to me lately, so I’m a bit hesitant laying the points with Weber State here. However, the Wildcats have been doing a good job beating up on the teams that they should be beating up on, while Idaho state is sliding to finish the season. I just trust Weber State a whole lot more than I do Idaho State, so even on the road, I have to lay the points here.
