The Weber State Wildcats and Montana State Bobcats meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

The Weber State Wildcats look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Weber State Wildcats are averaging 78.7 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 75.6 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Jerrick Harding is averaging 21.3 points and 3.4 rebounds while Cody John is averaging 15.5 points and 1.8 assists. Brekkott Chapman is the third double-digit scorer and Zach Braxton is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Weber State Wildcats are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 73.6 percent from the free throw line. The Weber State Wildcats are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.1 rebounds per game. The Weber State Wildcats have won their last three road games.

The Montana State Bobcats could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Montana State Bobcats are averaging 73.7 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 80.6 points on 48.6 percent shooting. Tyler Hall is averaging 19.6 points and 2.5 assists while Harald Frey is averaging 14.5 points and 4.2 rebounds. Keljin Blevins is the third double-digit scorer and Ladan Ricketts is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Montana State Bobcats are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 71.8 percent from the free throw line. The Montana State Bobcats are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.1 rebounds per game. The Montana State Bobcats have won four of their last five home games.

The Wildcats are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Sky and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bobcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Sky, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wildcats are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Montana St and 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 15-7 in Bobcats last 22 overall. The over is 35-16 in Wildcats last 51 road games.

The Weber State Wildcats have won each of the last nine meetings against the Montana State Bobcats and have covered most of those games as well. Weber State should be the favorites in this contest, but Montana State has an offense that's capable of keeping up with the Wildcats, and they're averaging 82 points on 47.1 percent shooting in their last five games. This should be a back and forth high scoring game and it's a bigger game for Montana State, who need some key big wins if this season is going to be saved. I'll take a shot with the free buckets and the Bobcats.

Pick:
Montana State +4
