The Mustangs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, however, are just 21-50-2 ATS in their last 73 Saturday games. The Aggies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, however, are just 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games.

Cal Poly has struggled statistically on both ends of the court this season and currently rank just 316th in scoring offense, 273rd in FG%, and 23rd in scoring defense.

UC Davis has lost 4 of their last 6 games and although the Aggies rank 97th in FG%, the Aggies have struggled defensively as they come into this game ranked just T-219th in scoring offense & 292nd in defensive FG%.

UC Davis has dominated this match-up over recent years, however, the Aggies are not the same quality team that we’ve seen in recent years. Cal Poly has been competitive as of late, winning 4 of their last 5 games ATS including tough road match-ups at Hawai’i and UC Irvine and as I think their offense can have some success agianst the Aggies in this match-up, I think the Mustangs will do just enough to cover with the points. Take Cal Poly to cover. Good Luck!
