Montana comes into this game after winning eight of their last nine games and split the season series with Northern Arizona, with both teams winning by one point. Northern Arizona did not play well for most of the season and was second to last in the Big Sky standings, but they are now only two wins away from the NCAA Tournament. Northern Arizona has scored 81+ points in four straight games and I like them in this game.
