The Weber State Wildcats will travel to Reese Court to take on the Eastern Washington Eagles this Saturday night in College Basketball action.

The Weber State Wildcats snapped their 2-game losing streak and improved to 12-18 (8-11 Big Sky) on the season after defeating the Idaho Vandals, 72-64, this past Thursday night. Weber State led by a 38-29 margin at halftime and pulled away in the 2nd half after an 11-0 Wildcats run gave Weber State a 65-56 lead with 3:38 left in regulation.

The Eastern Washington Eagles won their 6th straight game and improved to 22-8 (15-4 Big Sky) on the season after defeating the Idaho State Bengals, 100-75, this past Thursday. Eastern Washington led by a 46-41 margin at halftime and had no trouble securing the victory after taking a 69-46 lead with 14:02 left in regulation. Eastern Washington shot 57.1% from the field and committed just 6 turnovers in the victory. Leading the way for the Eagles was Mason Peatling who had 16 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists, and a block.

Defensively, Eastern Washington is allowing their opponents to average 72.9 ppg on 42.7% shooting from the field. The Eagles have a rebound margin of 1.3 and a turnover margin of 1.7.

The Wildcats are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games and just 4-8 ATS on the road this season. The Eagles are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 17-11 ATS on the season.

Weber State comes into this game ranked just 210th in scoring offense, 232nd in scoring defense, and 280th in defensive FG%.

Eastern Washington has been led by their offense which comes into this match-up ranked T-7th in scoring offense, 54th in FG%, and 29th in three-pointers made per game.

Eastern Washington was able to escape with a 79-77 victory at Weber State, however, I expect the Eagles to have a much easier team with the Wildcats at home in which they come into this game with a 12-2 home record. Eastern Washington has an explosive offense that should have success agianst the Wildcats and between the fact that Weber State has lost their last 5 road games by an average of 17 ppg and that Eastern Washington can clinch the top-seed for the Big Sky tournament with a win, I’m taking Eastern Washington to cover this double-digit home spread. Good Luck!
