CBB GAME OF THE WEEK ~ BEN'S BIGGEST SIDE YET!
Eastern Washington vs. Seattle,
11/09/2019 22:00 EDT,
Score: 74 - 66
Point Spread: -2½/-110 Seattle
I'm playing on SEATTLE. When these instate rivals met last season, the Redhawks hammered the Eagles by an 88-68 margin. Two seasons ago, Seattle won by a similar margin, 84-65. If they can stay healthy, the Eagles should have a good season in the Big Sky. However, they're still not ready to knock off Seattle. Note that Eastern Washington was 1-9 in non-conf. play last season. Seattle, on the other hand, was 10-4 in non-conf. action, outscoring teams by a 78.4 to 68.9 ppg. The Redhawks are going to be in an angry mood after getting blown out at Washington State. Needless to say, this is a significant step down in class. Having faced the Cougars intense defense should serve them well. The Redhawks, who returned four starters from last season, know that they've got a brutal non-conf. schedule and that they can't afford to squander this opportunity. The Redhawks, 31-9 their last 40 at home, are 3-0 SU the past 2+ seasons, after a road loss of 20 or more points. Expect them to improve on those stats, covering the small number along the way.
