Portland State vs Montana Betting Prediction

Montana comes into this matchup with a 12-6 conference record and they were tied for second in the Big Sky standings. The Grizzlies are shooting over 48% from the field and they are the much better offensive team. Portland State was 8-10 in conference play and they finished sixth in the Big Sky. Portland State did win the first meeting between these teams by a score of 72-46, while Montana won the second by a score of 82-73. Montana finished the regular season playing very well and I don’t think Portland State is shooting the ball well enough to pull the upset. Take the Grizzlies here.
