The Idaho Vandals and Weber State Wildcats meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Dee Events Center.

The Idaho Vandals could use a win after losing 14 of their last 15 games. The Idaho Vandals are averaging 66.1 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 78.5 points on 46 percent shooting. Trevon Allen is averaging 13.8 points and 3.1 assists while Cameron Tyson is averaging 13.3 points and two rebounds. Jared Rodriguez is the third double-digit scorer and Scott Blakney is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Idaho Vandals are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.8 percent from the free throw line. The Idaho Vandals are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 28.8 rebounds per game. The Idaho Vandals haven’t won a road game since December 1.

The Weber State Wildcats could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Weber State Wildcats are averaging 77.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 76 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Jerrick Harding is averaging 21.8 points and 3.4 rebounds while Cody John is averaging 14.6 points and 2.2 assists. Brekkott Chapman is the third double-digit scorer and Zach Braxton is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Weber State Wildcats are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. The Weber State Wildcats are allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Weber State Wildcats have won four of their last six home games.

The Vandals are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, 4-10 ATS in their last 14 vs. Big Sky and 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The Vandals are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Vandals last 6 Thursday games. The under is 11-4-1 in Wildcats last 16 home games.

I've been fading the Idaho Vandals pretty much all season long and it's paid off considering they've not only lost 14 of their last 15 games, but they're also just 8-18 ATS overall and have failed to cover 21 of their last 29 games. On the road this season, Idaho is losing by an average of 16.4 points while allowing 48.5 percent shooting. When you get those numbers, it's hard to make a case, even when the line is quite beefy. There's much better options on Thursday's card, but if forced to pick this contest, I have to side with Weber State. I want nothing to do with the Idaho Vandals. 

Pick:
Weber State -19
