Eastern Washington Eagles

The Eastern Washington Eagles are coming off a season in which they went 18-16 overall and 10-6 in the Big Sky. The team won only one game in the Big Sky Tournament so they didn’t make the NCAA Tournament but they did get invited to the CBI where they made it to the quarterfinals before losing to Nevada.

It is not going to be easy for the Eagles in 2016-2017 as they will not have leading scorer Austin McBroom or top rebounder Venky Jois. The Eagles were not that great on defense with Jois in the lineup so they could be even worse without him. Eastern Washington is going to run and gun again this season which means a lot of high scoring games and it could mean a lot of losses.

The Eagles lost two of their top recruits as Will Ferris and Bear Henderson transferred. The Eagles will be hoping that Michael Wearne can come back from hip surgery and they do have Bogdan Bliznyuk and Felix von Hofe.

2016-2017 Eastern Washington Eagles Betting

The Eagles probably won’t win as many games as they did a year ago but they could still be a good team to bet on, especially at home as they were 7-3 ATS at home last season. They should also be a team to bet over the total as they went over more often than under last season.  The team will play very little defense this season so taking the over is definitely worth considering when the Eagles play.

Eastern Washington Eagles Picks

It will be hard for the Eagles to improve upon last year’s record considering they lost their leading scorer and rebounder from a year ago. The team will still score a lot of points because of the offense they run and they might be a good team to bet over the total in their games. The Big Sky is not that strong so the Eagles should still flirt with a winning record and have a chance at postseason play, just not the NCAA Tournament.
