NEWSLETTER College Basketball Prediction From Robert Ferringo
Take Montana (-3) over San Francisco (9 p.m., Friday, Dec. 4)
Let’s get another win with Montana here. This is a Grizzlies team that came in as an overwhelming favorite in the Big Sky. They got off to a great open, beating Boise State in their first game of the year. But Montana has been a mess since then, losing three straight against D-I competition. However, the last two – at North Dakota State and at Pepperdine – are somewhat predictable losses. And now the Grizz are back home in a game that I think they will be focused for. Montana got smoked at San Francisco last year and they will want a little payback here. San Francisco has gotten to 4-2 by playing a really weak schedule, beating a bunch of nobodies to this point. The Dons are young and have a lot of moving pieces and I think they will struggle against Montana’s defense and methodical style. I think it will be a short number and I see Montana getting a revenge win.
