Sacramento State -11 over Idaho (loss)
In no way am I comparing Sacramento State to a Virginia program, but this team mirrors them in a lot of ways.  This is a team that won’t beat themselves and they play rock solid defense.  Idaho is a team that has no identity with an interim coach.  This team is 0-8 on the road and just does not play good defense.  I think Vegas knows what they are doing by setting a line this high.  Sacramento State is not a top tier team by any means because they have a poor offense, but playing at a slow pace with purpose and rock solid defense frustrates poor basketball teams.  It won’t be pretty, but at some point the Hornets will pull away.  Take Sacramento State.
