What to Know
The Idaho Vandals have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Idaho and the Portland State Vikings will face off in a Big Sky battle at 10 p.m. ET Thursday at The Viking Pavilion. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
It was close but no cigar for the Vandals as they fell 95-91 to the Idaho State Bengals on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Portland State was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Saturday as they fell 73-67 to the Montana Grizzlies.
Idaho is expected to lose this next one by 5. Now might not be the best time to take Idaho against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.
In the teams' previous meeting last month, Idaho lost to the Vikings at home by a decisive 74-58 margin. Can the Vandals avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
