Portland State-Nevada Prediction: Underdog Vikings will cover

<pre><pre>Portland State-Nevada Prediction: Underdog Vikings will cover

If you want to diversify your sports betting investments on the night of the college football championship, you only have one college basketball game in the main rotation in Nevada. The home team is a Montana squad who has competed in each of the last two NCAA tournaments and wants to look after an aspiring team from Portland State.

Both teams play at a similar pace and are led by stars who do different things. The state of Portland is highlighted by Holland Woods, who gives his team 18.4 points and 5.5 assists per game, while receiving 1.8 thefts per game.

Against Montana is Sayeed Pridgett, who eases a little less with an average of 18.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and three assists per game, but is more on the glass. He also gives his team active hands with 1.9 steals per game, but his efforts on the glass are far more necessary.

Portland State takes part in this game with an average of 12.3 offensive rebounds per game. This is fourth place in college basketball among the 353 Division I teams. Montana is not that big and occupies 278th place in the overall rebound rate in college basketball, although it is better defensive in the defensive rebound rate with 98th place.

Unlike shooting, it is easier on the road to duplicate the rebound and defense, which makes the Viking edge an important reason why the team is 7-3 against the scatter on the road.

The state of Portland scores again, and Montana, ranked 292th in college basketball by points per possession, speaks for the Vikings as they continue their street success.

The game: Portland State, +5.
