Joshua Patton is averaging 13.7 points and 5.5 rebounds while Ethan Esposito is averaging 10.2 points and 5.2 rebounds.

The Vandals are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Monday games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Vandals last 5 overall.

Both of these teams have been getting stomped on lately, losing their last five games by an average of double-digit points. Yes, the Sacramento State Hornets play well at home and Idaho has been rough on the road, but there's no laying double-digit chalk with either side with the way both teams are playing. I wouldn't touch this game personally, but if forced to pick, give me the Vandals and the free buckets.
