Staying in the Big Sky Conference where we have another top team in the 20-9 Eastern Washington Eagles facing the bottom dwelling 5-24 Southern Utah Thunderbirds.

  Eastern Washington vs Southern Utah 

The opening line has the visiting Eagles favored by 10 points at Heritage.

The Eagles are a fairly up tempo team along with Southern Utah, but the problem for the Thunderbirds is that they don’t shoot very well. Kind of goes hand in hand with a 5-24 SU record in the sport of basketball. Southern Utah averages just 40.6% from the floor on the year, and the Eagles held them to just 35.8% in their first meeting in Cheney. The Eagles led by as many as 29 points in that game and I like them here to bury Southern Utah early, so I’m invested in the first half line. After all, they’ve averaged a 17-point lead on Southern Utah at halftime in their last three meetings. Not much to overthink here with Eastern Washington 7-1 ATS on the road in their last 8 games. Look for EWU swingman, Bogdan Bliznyuk, to put up his 4th game in a row of over 24 points and grab the Eagles on the 1st half line when it comes out at Heritage.
