The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and Montana Grizzlies face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Dahlberg Arena.

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks have had some major struggles this year and coming into this game they sit with a 3-8 record overall, and they have lost two games in a row. Each of the last two games against Idaho State, they have also failed to cover the spread. On the season, Northern Arizona is averaging 64.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 77.8 points per game. In this game if Northern Arizona is going to want to come away with a victory the defense is going to need to be a lot better. Northern Arizona is led by Cameron Shelton who averages 22.2 points and shoots 43.1 percent from the field and 33.3 percent deep.

On the other side of this matchup is the Montana Grizzlies who have also had issues and they currently sit with a 5-6 record overall. Coming into this game though, Montana has won two games in a row and two games ago they only gave up 54 points. Montana isn’t an elite offensive team so it’s even more important that the defense is strong. Montana is averaging 62.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 65.5 points per game. Montana is shooting 40.4 percent from the field and 34 percent from deep. Montana is led by Kyle Owens who averages 11.9 points and shoots 44.6 percent from the field and 37.5 percent deep

These are two offenses that aren’t good and that is going to continue to a lower scoring game. Back the under to cash with ease in this game and it really won’t even get close to the number.
