Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and Weber State Wildcats meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Dee Events Center.

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks could use a win after losing nine of their last 11 games. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are averaging 72.2 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 80 points on 48.5 percent shooting. Carlos Hines is averaging 13 points and 2.9 assists while Bernie Andre is averaging 12.3 points and 6.8 rebounds. Ted McCree is the third double-digit scorer and Davon Bolton dishing 1.9 assists. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 69.9 percent from the free throw line. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.4 rebounds per game. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks have lost their last six road games. 

The Weber State Wildcats look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Weber State Wildcats are averaging 77.4 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 77.9 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Jerrick Harding is averaging 21.2 points and 3.9 rebounds while Cody John is averaging 15.9 points and 1.8 assists. Brekkott Chapman is the third double-digit scorer and Zach Braxton is grabbing 7.6 rebounds. The Weber State Wildcats are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Weber State Wildcats are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Weber State Wildcats have won four of their last five home games.

The Lumberjacks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Wildcats are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games and 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Lumberjacks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Weber St. The under is 6-1-1 in Wildcats last 8 home games. The under is 5-2 in Lumberjacks last 7 vs. Big Sky.

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks have lost six straight road games and are being outscored by 10.1 points on the road this season overall. The Weber State Wildcats are playing better basketball lately, but they're also just 1-5 ATS this season as a favorite. The bottom line is Weber State isn't good enough defensively or consistent enough as a team to be laying this type of chalk. I'll take Northern Arizona and the points if forced to pick this contest.

Pick:
Northern Arizona Lumberjacks +13
