Offense has been an issue for most of the season for the Vandals and in the last game against Northern Colorado they could only manage 49 points while giving up 93. On the road this season Idaho is averaging 61.8 points per game while giving up 73.3 points. 

The real bright spot for Idaho is Trevon Allen who is averaging 20.4 points while shooting 44.3 percent from the field. 

Southern Utah has had an okay season, but they are really struggling coming into this game having lost five games in a row. During that five-game losing streak, the Thunderbirds have covered only one spread. 

At home this season Southern Utah has an 8-5 record and the biggest reason is their defense is giving up only 64.9 points per game and allowing opponents to shoot only 39.3 percent from the field. 

Southern Utah is led by guards Cameron Oluyitan and  John Knight III who are both averaging 12.9 points per game. 

Southern Utah had good defensive success in the first game against Idaho and that is going to be a key again in this one. 

Southern Utah is 2-10 against the spread in their last ten home games.

Southern Utah blew out the Idaho Vandals earlier in the season but that isn’t going to be the case again in this one. Southern Utah has struggled coming into this game and that will continue in this game. The Thunderbirds will still find a way to win the game, but Idaho is going to cover the spread.
