Speaking of close games: Sacramento State was close but no cigar on Thursday as they fell 60-56 to Montana State.
Montana is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The Grizzlies are now 14-13 while the Hornets sit at 13-16. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Montana is stumbling into the game with the fourth fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.3 on average. Sacramento State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 358th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 9.4 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
