UC-Davis vs. UC-San Diego Prediction

I’m on UC-San Diego here. I’m sure UC-Davis has revenge on the mind after the Tritons beat them in their own gym by 33 points earlier this season, but UC-San Diego is rock solid on both ends of the floor and are the better team here. UC-Davis has been a gatekeeper of the Big West, but it feels like there’s a changing of the guards and UC-San Diego is ready for their time. Give me the Tritons at home.

Chris’s Pick UC-San Diego -6.5
