The Southern Utah Thunderbirds and Montana State Bobcats meet Monday in college basketball action at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

The Southern Utah Thunderbirds look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Southern Utah Thunderbirds are averaging 73.3 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 76.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Brandon Better is averaging 12.3 points and 1.4 rebounds while Cameron Oluyitan is averaging 12.6 points and 2.2 assists. Dwayne Morgan is the third double-digit scorer and Andre Adams is grabbing 6.3 rebounds. The Southern Utah Thunderbirds are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the free throw line. The Southern Utah Thunderbirds are allowing 37 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Southern Utah Thunderbirds have lost six of their last seven road games.

The Montana State Bobcats look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Montana State Bobcats are averaging 77.8 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 80.2 points on 49 percent shooting. Tyler Hall is averaging 19.9 points and 2.7 assists while Harald Frey is averaging 16.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. Keljin Blevins is the third double-digit scorer and Ladan Ricketts is grabbing two rebounds. The Montana State Bobcats are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 73.1 percent from the free throw line. The Montana State Bobcats are allowing 38.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.5 rebounds per game. The Montana State Bobcats have won four of their last five home games.

The Thunderbirds are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Sky and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Big Sky and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Thunderbirds are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Montana St and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in Thunderbirds last 5 Monday games. The over is 4-1 in Bobcats last 5 overall.

The Southern Utah Thunderbirds have not only failed to cover nine of their last 12 road games, but they're losing by an average of 7.4 points while shooting under 42 percent from the field on the road overall this season. The Montana State Bobcats have turned their season around lately where they're shooting 48.3 percent from the field in their last five games and have covered seven of their last nine. Montana State also won the first meeting between these teams back in December by 30 points. I'll eat the reasonable chalk with the home team.

Pick:
Montana State -5.5
