Montana State travels to Pocatello to take on the Idaho State Bengals in this matchup, and their 8-2 SU record coming into this game is the opposite of the Bengals 2-8 SU record in their last ten games.

  Montana State vs Idaho State 

Montana State has opened as small 3-point road favorites and that seems a little light in my opinion.

The last time I faded Idaho State I got burned a bit, as they covered as 13-point underdogs on the road against Eastern Washington, 89-77. Idaho State does have the ability to run and gun, so if an opponent puts them in that situation they can stick around. That should not be the case here, as Montana State limited the Bengals to just 46 attempts in their last matchup, well under their season average. In their game earlier this season Montana State won 80-63, but were leading by 23 points at one point in the second half. The Bobcats outrebounded the Bengals and forced more turnovers throughout the game. Finally, this game would lock up a 1st round bye for Montana State in the Big Sky Conference tournament, motivation I am willing to back against the 6-22 Bengals at just 3-point road chalk at 5Dimes. Idaho State has lost 6 games in a row SU.
