We took Northern Arizona on the premium side Thursday night and we are going to come back with them small on Saturday. They are a very even team with Portland State so getting nine points seems like some solid value. These teams have played five games against common opponents and the Lumberjacks are 2-3 while the Vikings are only 1-4 with very similar point margins.
A reason for the the extra points of value could be how each team has done at the pay window lately. Portland State has won six of the last seven against the spread while Northern Arizona has lost five of their last six.
The Lumberjacks have played some solid teams this year and lost badly to Arizona, BYU, and Colorado. I still don’t think they are quite as bad as their last two losses would indicate, so the quick turnaround might be good for them here tonight.
Last year they lost twice to Portland State by double digits, so you can expect them to want some revenge tonight.
***11-FOR-1 Saturday Card is now posted! Jimmy Boyd is now 37-23 62% on his last 60 plays. He has a PAIR of NFL winners (26-15 playoff run), FIVE CBB (12-4 in CBB last week), and FOUR NBA winners, including TWO 4* plays!***
