The UC San Diego Tritons and Long Beach State Beaches face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at the Walter Pyramid. When these two teams faced off on January 20th it was Long Beach State that won 87-69. 

Joel Murray and Colin Slater were the top two players for Long Beach State scoring 20 points. Toni Rocak was the top player for UC San Diego scoring 18 points. 

UC San Diego comes into this game with an 11-14 record overall and they have gone 9-12-2 against the spread. The Tritons offense has been an issue coming into this game including the last game against Hawaii where the offense could only score 53 points. Toni Rocak has been the top player for this team averaging 15 points while shooting 46.2 percent from the field. In this game, UC San Diego needs to find a way to get the offense going.

On the other side of this matchup is Long Beach State and they currently sit with a 15-10 record and they have gone 16-7 against the spread. Even though they have played pretty well this season, they are coming off a blowout loss. Against UCSB, the defense gave up 84 points, and that led to the defeat. Long Beach State is averaging 73.6 points while their defense is giving up 72.7 points per game. Joel Murray has been the top player for Long Beach State averaging 15.6 points while shooting 43 percent from the field and 31.8 percent from deep. 

Long Beach State is 0-6 against the spread in their last six home games. UC San Diego is 1-7 in their last eight games as a road underdog. The over is 4-0 in UC San Diego’s last four games following an against-the-spread loss.

The first time these two teams faced off, Long Beach State scored 87 points, but in this game, they aren’t going to be as strong. I expect the pace of this game is actually going to be slower, and they will have trouble getting to even 70 points. UC San Diego’s offense has been a problem all season, and the under is going to cash.
