The Northern Colorado Bears (21-9, CONF 14-5) and Montana State Bobcats (16-14, CONF 10-9) face off in a Big Sky showdown at Worthington Arena.Northern Colorado beat Montana State 68-59 earlier this season. 

Northern Colorado has played some really good basketball this year, and over their last ten games they have won eight games. During the ten game stretch the Bears have also covered seven of the spreads. 

Away from home the Bears haven’t been as strong, but they have still played well winning eight of their 13 games. Northern Colorado is averaging 70.5 points per game while giving up 66 points on the road. 


Northern Colorado is led by guard Jonah Radebaugh averaging 16.3 points while shooting 49.6 percent from the field. 

Montana State has also been a solid team this year but at times they have been really inconsistent. Coming into this game the Bobcats have won two games in a row, before that they had lost three games in a row. 

Montana State isn’t an elite offensive team so they need to play good defense to find success. Over the last five games the offense is averaging 63 points per game, while the defense is giving up 69.8 points. 

Montana State is led by Harald Frey who is averaging 16.7 points while shooting 40.8 percent from the field. In Montana State’s last game, Frey put up 22 points with 12 of those points coming from deep.

Northern Colorado is 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Montana State’s last 10 games as a home underdog. The under is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings between Northern Colorado and Montana State. Northern Colorado is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine meetings against Montana State.

Montana State has been strong at home this season, and they are going to play enough defense to slow down the Northern Colorado offense. The play is with Montana State against the spread, but playing a few dollars on the money line at plus money is an intriguing option.
