Eastern Washington has shown the ability to hang around with good teams this year and win on the road. The Eagles played well against Pac-12 opponents early in the season and have done well ATS in the 2020-21 season.
Montana State Bobcats

Given how well EWU shoots from inside the line, the Bobcats will also have their hands full protecting the paint.
