Northern Colorado comes into this game with a 20-15 record overall and they have gone 15-16-1 against the spread. Northern Colorado had won two games in a row heading into their last game against Montana State where they really struggled. The defense really struggled giving up 87 points and that led to a blowout defeat. Daylen Kountz has been the top player this season for Northern Colorado averaging 21.2 points while shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from behind the three point line. The Bears want to play at a fast pace and are averaging 78.2 points while their defense is giving up 77 points per game.

FAU is 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games following an against the spread loss. The over is 4-0 in FAU’s last four neutral site games. The over is 5-1 in Northern Colorado’s last six games as an underdog. Northern Colorado is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points. 

Northern Colorado is an elite offensive team and they are getting way too many points in this game. I expect FAU is going to really struggle to defend and that is going to be the difference as the Bears get the job done. Back Northern Colorado against the spread. I am also throwing a few dollars on Northern Colorado to win this game outright.
