Against The Spread Pick
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors will be in the mix in the Big West Conference this season. They enter this game with a record of 10-6, which includes a 1-1 conference record. However, they are coming off a 60-74 road loss against UC Irvine last Saturday, which ended their two-game winning streak. The Rainbow Warriors will look to bounce back following the loss when they host the Cal Poly Mustangs. Meanwhile, the Cal Poly Mustangs are not a talented team, and that is evident by their 4-12 record. However, they are 1-1 in conference play, which includes a 74-56 win over Cal State Northridge. I look for Hawaii to dominate this game at home, which is why I’m putting my money on the Rainbow Warriors -13.5 points in this spot.
Over Under Pick
Cal Poly enters this game as a below-average team offensively as they are averaging 63.19 points per game. Defensively, they are slightly above-average as they are allowing 71.93 points per game. Meanwhile, the Rainbow Warriors have been below the national average in terms of points per game as they are averaging 70.94. However, they have been a reliable team defensively limiting opponents to 68.06 points per game. I look for the under 134 points to be the profitable side on Friday.
