Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up win and  are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.

Under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings and Sacramento State Hornets are 9-19 ATS in the last 28 meetings and underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

I don’t think either team should be giving up points so I’ll take them…

Northern Arizona +2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
