Northern Colorado @ San Jose State
Current Records: Northern Colorado 3-3; San Jose State 1-3
What to Know
The Northern Colorado Bears will hit the road for the third straight game as they head to Provident Credit Union Event Center at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
The Bears were close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 74-70 to the California Baptist Lancers.
Meanwhile, it’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 79-45, which was the final score in San Jose State’s tilt against the Texas Longhorns this past Saturday.
Northern Colorado is the favorite in this one, with an expected 5.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Sunday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Northern Colorado is now 3-3 while San Jose State sits at 1-3. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Northern Colorado is stumbling into the game with the 35th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 11.3 on average. SJSU is completely their equal: they are 35th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.3 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
