The Line: Hawaii Rainbow Warriors -12 -- Over/Under:
The Long Beach State 49ers and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors meet in college basketball action from Stan Sheriff Center on Wednesday.
Long Beach State enters this one at 7-17 this year. Since their last win over UC Irvine, the 49ers have lost three straight games to UC Riverside, UCSB and Cal Poly.
In the loss to the Mustangs, Long Beach State’s Chance Hunter and Michael Carter each scored 15 points, combining for two assists and five rebounds. Jordan Roberts chipped in 11 points with six boards there also.
Over on the Hawaii side, they’re 14-8 this year. Following a recent four-game win streak, the Rainbow Warriors have lost consecutive games to UCSB and Cal Poly.
In the loss to the Mustangs, Hawaii’s top scorer was Dawson Carper with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Drew Buggs also doubled up there on 19 points with 11 rebounds, and Justin Webster had 11 points with seven rebounds.
Hawaii is 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in their last four overall and the under is 5-2 in their last seven Wednesday games.
Meanwhile, the 49ers are 1-5 ATS in their last six overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games. The over is 10-2 in LBSU’s last 12 road games and 10-2 in their last 12 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Long Beach State has only hit 70 points once in the last five games, specifically 75 in the 17-point loss to Cal Poly. The 49ers aren’t necessarily a big-scoring team; when they’re putting up the points it’s usually in a catchup capacity.
As for Hawaii, they’ve had their hits and misses lately but have also managed at least 70 points in four of their last five outings. I’m going to stick with the Warriors on the cover here.
