The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (16-12, CONF 7-7) and the UC Davis Aggies (14-16, CONF 8-6) face off in a Big West showdown at The Pavilion. Hawaii beat UC Davis by a point earlier this season.
Hawaii has been up and down this season and the last ten games has been a perfect representation of the year. Over the last ten games, Hawaii has won four games, and only covered the spread in two of the games.
Away from home this season Hawaii only has two wins, and the offense has been the biggest issue averaging only 63.6 points per game and shooting 38.6 percent from the field. In Hawaii’s last game the offense really struggled scoring only 43 points, and they need to find a way to get the offense going early.
Hawaii is led by guard Eddie Stansberry who is averaging 15.5 points per game and shooting 39.4 percent from the field.
UC Davis sit’s below .500 but they have had a little success as of late winning five of the last six games. In two of those games, UC Davis was the underdog and they won the game outright.
UC Davis is a strong offensive team, and coming into this game they are averaging 74.2 points per game at home.
In UC Davis’s last game it was Caleb Fuller and Stefan Gonzalez who paced the team both putting up 16 points.
Hawaii is 2-8 against the spread in their last ten games overall. Hawaii is 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 Thursday games. The over is 7-2 in UC Davis’s last nine games as home favorite. UC Davis is 17-5 against the spread in their last 22 games overall. UC Davis is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight against the Big West.
UC Davis is playing better basketball right now, and Hawaii has been a team that has really struggled on the road. Look for Hawaii to struggle to score, and that will be enough for the Aggies to win the game and cover the spread.
