College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Weber State Wildcats at Montana Grizzlies
CBB FREE PICK: Weber State Wildcats at Montana Grizzlies
#672 Montana -4.5 First Half/Over 139.5 (Thursday, February 13 @ 9 pm EST)
Weber State has played 24 games but no rotation player has played in more than 21. Injuries played a big role in the Wildcats’ early season struggles but with relatively good health and a set rotation, we’ve since seen this team play its best basketball — particularly on offense — during a recent 4-1 run. During that span, they produced four of their five best offensive performances efficiency wise on the season.
“It’s the lineup I wanted to have, minus how (Kupsas) fit in, but we’ve had so much fluctuation with guys hurt and not sure who we’d have,” Rahe said. “We’re able to now get our starting lineup set, get our rotations off the bench set. I told our staff, it’s February whatever but this is the first time we’ve got everyone together so now we can start to get better. We couldn’t get better through December into January, we had too many moving parts. So we have a starting lineup, guys know their roles, and we’re starting to get better.”
Montana is also surging on the offensive end. The Grizzlies have scored 81, 78, 92, and 82 their last four games and currently rank first in the Big Sky in efficiency (1.09 ppp) and 3-point shooting (41%). Montana will no doubt be looking for blood tonight after leading the first meeting for 38 minutes, blowing a 7-point lead, and ultimately losing in overtime. I played a little Montana first half and also some OVER.
