Eastern doesn’t play much defense, so if they have a trend of keeping another team under 40% - pay attention!

   Eastern Washington Eagles vs Northern Arizona Lumberjacks  


My alma mater EWU has been one of the better ATS teams this season, carrying an 11-5 ATS record in the Big Sky Conference into this last game of the regular season. They have opened as an 8-point favorite over Northern Arizona on the road, which I think is a little light considering the Lumberjacks 5-12 conference record. The Eagles come into this game on a 5-game SU winning streak.

Eastern dominated the first game played between these two teams in January, holding NAU to just 39.6% shooting in their 84-62 win. Eastern Washington won by 22 points, even though Northern Arizona shot more than 10% better than their season average from beyond the arc! I’m not expecting this game to be close with Eastern Washington looking to preserve their #1 seed in the Big Sky Tournament. Eastern is 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 meetings against Northern Arizona. The dominance continues Saturday night and I am taking EWU -8 as one of my Saturday college basketball plays of the day. I called on Eastern's Bogdan Bliznyuk to score more than 24 points in his last game for the 4th game in a row and he put up 32. Look for a big game from him again on Saturday night.
