Previewing Tonight’s Games.

First of note: Hope everyone up in Anchorage is recovering well from the 7.0 earthquake that hit yesterday morning.

That said: We have an exciting night of games in store, so let’s talk about them!

All times pacific.

UAA @ MSUB @ 6pm

MSUB just eked out a win against UAF. We get the sense that UAF is better than UAA, but their non-con play matched up relatively well, so who knows. We still think UAF is overall better than MSUB as well, but Alterowitz is brutal. We’ll see what happens when the Seawolves and Jackets face off, but we’ll give the edge to MSUB.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

SFU @ CU-PDX @ 7pm

INTRIGUE. SFU is better than normal, CU-PDX is about as good as normal and just had two wins against SFU-like teams in the Bay area. That said, we feel like SFU gets better talent than Concordia, and so… Who knows? It should be a good game.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

WWU @ WOU @ 7pm

Battle of the Westerns. Always a good game. We’re really excited to see what happens because WWU is clearly starting to click meanwhile WOU hasn’t so much yet, but… We like what WOU brings to the table. If they can finally lock in, they should be able to get past Western Washington. If they can’t, it could be a long night and WWU could win by a lot.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

CWU @ SPU @ 7:30pm

Rivalry game. Our best advice is for the Falcons to play like we know they can, and for CWU to take advantage of the clear mental weakness SPU has been displaying. If Gabe Colosimo plays, SPU will 100% win, but if he doesn’t… It’ll be an interesting game, that is for sure.

Prediction: Pick ’em.

NNU @ SMU @ 7:30pm

We’re really loving this NNU team -they played fantastically against the Falcons- and yet we love this SMU team too. SMU needs to stay committed to team first basketball and lockdown defense and they should be fine. If they don’t, NNU will take full advantage and the game could easily get precarious.

Prediction: SMU wins.

It should be a good night of games -we’re definitely looking forward to it! We’ll see you tomorrow morning for game recaps.

Be safe, have fun, go GNAC!
