The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and Portland State Vikings face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at CenturyLink Arena. This is the first meeting played between the two teams. 

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks come into this game with a 5-15 record overall and coming into this game they have lost four games in a row. In three of their last four games, Northern Arizona has failed to cover the spread. Northern Arizona on the season is averaging 62.6 points while their defense is giving up 75.4 points per game. Northern Arizona is shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 34 percent from behind the three point line. Cameron Shelton has been the best player for Northern Arizona averaging 20.1 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 33. 8 percent from behind the three point line.

The under is 12-3 in Northern Arizona’s last 15 games played on Wednesday. The under is 26-8 in Northern Arizona’s last 34 neutral site games. The under is 11-2 in Portland State’s last 13 games against the Big Sky. The under is 13-3 in Portland State’s last 16 games overall. 

I expect both teams are going to struggle to score in this game, and that will lead to this game staying well under the total. Look for a slower paced game and for this one to stay well under the posted total. Back the under.
