The Weber State Wildcats and the Northern Colorado Bears meet in college basketball action from Bank of Colorado Arena on Saturday.
Weber State enters this one at 8-13 so far. After consecutive losses to Portland State and Montana State, the Wildcats have taken out Montana and Southern Utah in the pair since.
In the win over the Thunderbirds, Weber State’s lead scorer was Jerrick Harding with 27 points, six rebounds and three assists. Cody John added 22 points and three rebounds there, and Tim Fuller had 11 points with nine rebounds.
Over on the Northern Colorado side, they’re 13-7 so far. The Bears are 2-2 in their last four, falling to Northern AZ and Eastern Washington while beating Idaho and Idaho State otherwise.
In the win over the Bengals, Northern Colorado’s Jonah Radebaugh put up 22 points with seven rebounds and four assists. Trent Harris added 21 points there, and both Matt Johnson and Rodrick McCobb scored 11 points apiece.
The under is 4-1 in the Bears’ last five Saturday games and 15-7 in their last 22 after a straight-up win. Northern Colorado is 0-4 ATS in their last four after an ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last five versus a team with a losing straight-up record.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games. Weber State is 1-7 ATS in their last eight after a straight-up win and the over is 5-1 in their last six overall.
Weber State is 3-2 in their last five games and playing as well as they have all year. In each of those three wins (and one loss), the Wildcats posted at least 75 points, so they’re scoring a little more consistently these days.
As for Northern Colorado, they’ve had some pretty solid offensive showings lately as well, with 71 or more in four of their last five. I’m not thrilled about it, but Northern Colorado seems the better cover play here.
