Against the Spread Pick
In a battle of the Big Sky Conference, we’re seeing two remarkably similar teams face off on Thursday night. The two teams have similar overall records (10-4 for the Hornets vs. 10-5 for the Bears), similar conference records (3-2 for the Hornets vs. 3-1 for the Bears), and similar records against ranked opponents (they’re predictably winless in three combined games).
Over Under Pick
So what will be the determining factor on Thursday night? It has to be the road/home splits. Sacramento State is an underwhelming 2-4 on the road, while Northern Colorado has been dominant at home, going 6-0 overall (including 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four). Plus, the Bears have traditionally had the Hornets’ number; Northern Colorado is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two squads, and they’ve won five of the last six.
