Big Sky Tournament - Southern Utah vs. Weber State
Recommendation: Southern Utah +13.5
Southern Utah came from behind in stunning fashion as 10 point underdogs to beat Montana State in Triple OT on Tuesday night in the first round of the Big Sky Tournament. My clients and I cashed in with Southern Utah in that outright win. There is no doubt the fact three of their best players were on the court for over 50 minutes is a concern here with fatigue being a very real potential issue for Southern Utah as they face Weber State in this Big Sky Quarterfinal but the Thunderbirds showed tremendous resolve and grit to claw back and win that game the other night and the adrenaline and confidence alone from that win could carry them a long way tonight and I think the day off yesterday helps alleviate some of the fatigue concerns as opposed to if Southern Utah would have had to lace them up again and play 24 hours later. The other aspect of this bet is the fact Weber State was a pointspread disaster area throughout the Big Sky conference season. Weber State enters this game on a skid of 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games and 2-12 ATS in their last 14 Big Sky games. The Wildcats have been massive failures as favorites during that time and Southern Utah is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 head-to-head meetings between these two teams. Give me Southern Utah once again as a big double digit underdog to do enough to hang within this inflated price tag.
