The Portland State Vikings (15-14, CONF 9-8) and Weber State Wildcats (11-16, 7-9) face off in a Big Sky showdown at the Dee Events Center. Portland State knocked off Weber State 92-76 earlier this season.
Portland State has been a pretty average team, but they come into this game hot having won three games in a row. In Portland State’s last game against Idaho State, they scored 89 points and that led to an easy victory.
Away from home Portland State has a 5-11 record and when they struggle it’s because of their defense that is giving up 77.2 points per game.
Sometimes the Vikings offense can make up for it, and other times they can’t and that’s when they are knocked off. Portland State is led by Holland Woods who is averaging 17.6 points while shooting 41.9 percent from the field. In the last game against Idaho State, Woods dropped 29 points and four assists.
Weber State has been up and down and coming into this game they have lost two of the last three games. The one win was in Weber State’s last game game against Southern Utah when they put up 82 points.
At home this season Weber State has an 8-4 record and are averaging 71.3 points while giving up 70.8 points.
Weber State is led by guard Jerrick Harding who is averaging 22.5 points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field. Just a few games ago Weber State scored only 37 points against Montana and that has to be concerning about their scoring consistency in this game.
Portland State is 11-3-1 against the spread in their last 15 games played on Saturday. Weber State is 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 Saturday games. The over is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings between Portland State and Weber State.
Portland State has been running up the score as of late and there is no reason it can’t happen again in this one. Look for Portland State to push the pace and Weber State to score to try and keep up. All the scoring by both teams will allow this one to go well over the total.
