Northern Colorado vs Weber State Betting Prediction

Weber State had their winning streak snapped in their last game, but they are only one game behind Northern Colorado in the standings and will have home court advantage here. The Wildcats have been decent on offense, but they have been great on defense, allowing just 66.3 points against per game. Northern Colorado is 10-5 in conference play and they are tied for second in the Big Sky. The Bears are scoring over 80 points per game, but they are not good defensively. Weber State beat Northern Colorado on the road by a score of 82-63 in the first meeting, but I think we are going to see a much closer game here. Take the Bears with the points.
