Against The Spread Pick

On a full Saturday of college basketball, the Big Sky will see Northern Arizona take on Eastern Washington. This could prove to be an important game because the Eagles are still hunting for the number one seed in the conference. At 11-4 in the Big Sky, they trail Montana by one game. The Lumberjacks on the other hand, trail these Eagles by 2.5 for second place in the Big Sky. These teams met earlier this month, which resulted in a win for Eastern Washington. The Eagles have dominated the Lumberjacks in recent years, going 5-0 against them in the last 5 meetings and 9-1 in the last 10 meetings. This is really a game I would rather stay away from, but I would take the Eagles as a lean if I had to bet it.

Over Under Pick

Much like the side, this is not a total I want to bet. Northern Arizona has been a team that is struggling to score this season, only averaging 70.3 points per game. The opposite can be said for Eastern Washington as they average 77.5 points per game. Both sides have been able to average 74 points or more over their last five games. Likewise, each defense is allowing 74 points or more on average over the same stretch. With the lack of defense being shown recently, I lean to the over for this game.
