Idaho State vs Montana Betting Prediction

Montana comes into this matchup with an 11-6 conference record and they are tied for second in the Big Sky standings. The Grizzlies have had a very solid season and they are scoring over 77 points per game. Idaho State is only 7-10 in conference play and they are struggling right now. The Bengals have allowed 81 and 92 points in their last two games and they lost to Montana by a score of 76-68 in the first meeting. With the Bengals having some defensive issues and Montana playing great offensively, I think we are going to see plenty of points in this game. Take the over here.
