Northern Iowa started the season with a shaky 4-7 record. Since then, the Panthers have only lost two games in a row once. After a five-game winning streak, the Panthers were defeated by Loyola Chicago in the conference tournament before defeating Saint Louis in the NIT.
BYU hasn’t lost a game in a row since losing four in a row in January/February of this year, but they haven’t won consecutive games either. However, a loss to San Francisco in the conference tournament ended the Cougars’ three-game winning streak.
At halftime of their first NIT game against Long Beach State on Wednesday, the Cougars trailed 41-46. BYU rallied for a 93-72 victory with a 52-26 run.
BYU is 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win, and 1-6 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. The Cougars are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games. The Panthers, on the other hand, have a 7-3 ATS record in their last ten Saturday games and a 5-1 ATS record in their last six overall. The over is 11-4 in Northern Iowa’s last 15 away games.
BYU, on the other hand, has scored 75 points or more in four of their last five games, so this one could easily end in a high total. Northern Iowa is one of my favourite states, so I expect them to remain within cover range. It should be an enjoyable game to watch.
