TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH
#804 NORTHERN COLORADO (-6′) over Montana St at 8 PM EST
Off that ugly 19-point home loss to Weber State, Northern Colorado will bounce back with a solid effort inside the Bank of Colorado Arena against Montana State. The Bobcats limp into this Big Sky battle off a six-point home loss to the Vandals and this will be a difficult trip for head coach Matt Logie and his troops.
It certainly won’t take much for UNC to get up for this game. In the last six meetings between these two schools, the Bears have inked an ugly 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS mark which includes a 90-81 loss back on January 13th at Worthington Arena. Thankfully, when facing a foe that arrives off the comforts of a home game, Northern Colorado holds a reliable 33-22-1 ATS record including a powerful 22-8-1 ATS if head coach Steve Smiley’s boys hold a team won/loss percentage of .501 or higher. Also, when running the floor against a foe that enters without steam off a SU and ATS loss, the Bears sport a lucrative 16-8 ATS tally provided their opponent arrives with four or more days of rest.
This is not the best wagering spot for Montana State either. When coming off the comforts of a home game, the Bobcats hold a weak 22-35-1 ATS record in their last 58 games including a rough 10-25-1 ATS mark provided their opponent owns a team won/loss percentage of .400 or better. With those two parameters live and State priced as an underdog of +4 or more, this technical situation falls to a woeful 1-15 SU and 2-13-1 ATS including a shocking 0-14 SU and 0-13-1 ATS as long Coach Logie’s squad sports a team won/loss percentage less than .750.
Resting in the No. 2 slot in the conference standings and looking up at EWU, UNC needs this victory in order to keep the pressure on the Eags. Take Northern Colorado. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
