UC Davis is led by Joe Mooney who is averaging 13 points while shooting 45.4 percent from the field. Mooney is also shooting 88.2 percent from the free throw line. 

LBSU is 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 road games. Long Beach State is 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 Saturday games.
