Montana State Bobcats

The Montana State Bobcats coming off a win against the Rocky Mountain Rams. In that Game, Jubrile Belo and Mychaeil Paulo each had 16 points. Belo manned the boards with eight while Paulo dished out dimes with seven to go with two steals. Harald Fray had a very good start this season but his 34 points, six rebounds, five assists and six three-pointers were to waste in their loss against Utah St. Aggies. Against the Rams, he took a step back after having a bad shooting night but Belo and Paulo each had great games. A good x-factor in the win is Amin Adamu who contributed 12 points. Against the Mountaineers, stepping up would be crucial and it could help Frey get more easy looks. If that happens, there is a good chance that the Bobcats could steal a win.

Players to Watch: H. Frey (23 PPG, 6 RPG, 6.5 APG, 2.5 SPG), J. Belo (15 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 1 APG), M. Paulo (13 PPG, 4 APG, 2.5 SPG)

Appalachian State Mountaineers

The Mountaineers are on a high after winning their last two games against East Carolina Pirates and the Ferrum Panthers. It was a good rebound after suffering an opening day loss against the powerhouse Michigan Wolverines. Justin Forrest continues to lead the team in scoring with 22 points per game. He also contributes across the board with 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and a steal per game. Help has come to Forrest as Adrian Delph looks like a rising player that is willing to step up and be the team’s second man. Against the Pirates, Delph had 19 points and nine rebounds for the team. He could be a huge contributor for the Mountaineers heading to this game. Other than Delph, Isaan Johnson has been consistent with 10 points per game to go with 7.7 rebounds and 2.6 steals. James Lewis Jr and Donovan Gregory had contributed well against the Ferrum Panthers and will look to be more consistent as the season progresses.

Players to Watch: J. Forrest (22 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, 1 SPG), A. Delph (10 PPG, 5 RPG, 1.7 APG), I. Johnson (10 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, 2.6 SPG).

Montana State Bobcats vs Appalachian State Mountaineers Betting Picks

Summary: It was only the Michigan Wolverines that quickly solved the Mountaineers puzzle but Montana State is nothing like the former NCAA champions. NCAAB Point Spread Picks have Montana losing this road game but having the presence of Frey in the team makes their chances better to pull an upset. With the number of players that could step up for Appalachian State, it would be much more confusing for Montana to pull a victory.

ATS: Montana is given the +4 across the spread in this matchup against Appalachian State who was given the -4. 

TOTALS: 151 points is expected to be the score for both teams with the Mountaineers go under while Montana State is over.
