The UC Davis Aggies will take their three-game losing streak on the road when they play the Hawaii Warriors. These teams met at the end of January, and Hawaii dominated in a 90-73 victory.
The Aggies are usually a pretty solid offensive team, averaging 71 points on the season, but they haven’t topped 67 points in five of their last six games. In their last five contests, they’re averaging just 67.4 points on 40 percent shooting and allowing teams to score 76.4 points on 50.2 percent shooting. They are 1-10 SU on the road, averaging 67.6 points and giving up 84 points. They are 7-14-1 ATS overall and 3-8-1 ATS on the road.

The Warriors have won three of their last four games and are coming off of an overtime loss to UC Irvine, also known as the best team in the Big West. They are 16-5 SU this season when scoring 75 or more points and average 77.1 points on their home court. Defensively, they allow 77.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting. They are 13-8-1 ATS overall and 9-5 ATS at home.
Not much of an explanation is needed here. It’s either Hawaii or a no play. UC Davis plays absolutely no defense whatsoever, and Hawaii is one of the highest scoring teams in the country. In the earlier meeting, the Warriors shot 58.2 percent from the field and made seven three-point attempts. UC Davis simply can’t match that offensive production.
The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games against teams with a losing road record, while the Aggies are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 road games.
Hawaii won the last meeting in blowout fashion and with this one taking place on its home floor, you can expect a similar result.
