Eastern Washington at Northern Colorado odds, lines, picks and predictions


Northern Colorado 82, Eastern Washington 78

Money line

Northern Colorado (-270) will cost you more than two and a half times your potential return, and that’s just too much risk for not very much reward in what should be a very, very close game.


Against the spread

Take EASTERN WASHINGTON +5.5 (-105) as this one should be a tight affair.

The first meeting at EWU Jan. 22 was decided by just 4 points and Northern Colorado is just 2-5 ATS across its last seven games at home. Back the Eagles with the points.


The OVER 158.5 (-110) is the lean here but only play it lightly.

The Over has connected in five of the last six games for Eastern Washington, and the Over is also 5-1 in its last six against winning sides. The Over has hit in 14 of the last 17 games at home for Northern Colorado, too, while cashing in 16 of the last 21 overall and 14 of the past 18 as a favorite.
