The Idaho Vandals and Eastern Washington Eagles meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Reese Court.
The Idaho Vandals need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Idaho Vandals are averaging 65.6 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 70.4 points on 44 percent shooting. Trevon Allen is averaging 19.5 points and 4.5 rebounds while BJ Simmons is averaging 10.7 points and 2.6 rebounds. Scott Blakney is grabbing 4.5 rebounds and Marquell Fraser is dishing 2.4 assists. The Idaho Vandals are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 67.4 percent from the free throw line. The Idaho Vandals are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.7 rebounds per game. The Idaho Vandals have lost six of their last seven road games.
The Eastern Washington Eagles look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Eastern Washington Eagles are averaging 81.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 73.8 points on 36.3 percent shooting. Jacob Davison is averaging 17.4 points and 1.8 assists while Kim Aiken Jr. is averaging 14.8 points and 10.8 rebounds. Mason Peatling is grabbing six rebounds and Tyler Kidd is dishing 2.4 assists. The Eastern Washington Eagles are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 67.4 percent from the free throw line. The Eastern Washington Eagles are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The Eastern Washington Eagles have won three straight home games.
The Vandals are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games following a ATS loss. The Eagles are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Vandals last 8 overall. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Idaho Vandals are simply a poor basketball team, but they are 11-8-2 ATS on the season, so you can make money with them here and there. The Eastern Washington Eagles are 5-3 ATS at home, 12-8-1 ATS on the season and win at home by an average of 20.9 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field. The first meeting was competitive, but I question if the Idaho Vandals have the offensive horses to get the job done on the road here. Big number, but I'd lay it if forced to pick.
