Idaho State vs. Northern Arizona … just the reason that we’ve all been counting down until today’s date.
All right, maybe you didn’t even know this game was happening — personally I had to double-check to make sure this actually was the first round of the Big Sky Tournament. But nonetheless, if it’s a March college hoops game during an afternoon hour, it’s going to attract bets.
It’s not just casual bettors hitting this game for its appealing start time (4:30 p.m. ET), though. Sharps are also finding value on the spread, and the line has been adjusted as a result.
Let’s take a look.
Idaho State vs. Northern Arizona Sharp Betting Pick
Casual bettors may not know whole lot about either of these two squads; they should, however, know what “last place” means.
That’s exactly where Idaho State (4-16 in Big Sky play) finds itself entering the postseason, and going up against the 6-seed Northern Arizona (10-10), it would probably take a decently-sized spread to garner any sort of public backing of the Bengals (that’s Idaho State).
In other words, a 4.5-point opening number was never going to cut it — not for the public, at least.
