Hello, as a bettor that has followed the Big Sky Conference all year I am going to post a pick on the Sam Houston Vs. Eastern Washington game. I like Sam Houston in this game because they have too much speed for Eastern Washington. Sam Houston handled a good Montana State team easily last week and were speedier on both sides of the ball. Montana State was favored by 11 pts at kickoff and were dominated.
Eastern W. beat Montana State 27-24 during the season on two scores in the fourth quarter, (blocked punt for a TD, and an Interception for a TD within 59 seconds . Montana State was dominating the Eagles all game and Montana State also missed a field goal during the game. The final yardage count was Montana State 375 - 211 for Eastern. Montana State should not have lost this game.
I attended both games in Bozeman MT this year and could clearly see the speed of Sam Houston State was a big difference in the game. Eastern was outclassed by Montana State until the costly turnovers and Montana State was clearly in trouble from the onset with Sam Houston State.
Sam Houston State will be the better team Saturday and giving up 4 pts (5 Dimes) to Eastern Washington is a gift. They will cover easily and look for a score of 35 - 21 Sam Houston State the winner, and will move on to the championship game in Div. I (FCS).
