The Cal State Fullerton Titans got their season started with a win as they knocked off Portland State in double overtime 106-100. CSF shot 49.3 percent from the floor and 38.7 percent from beyond the 3-point arc while defensively they allowed 52.1 percent shooting from the floor. Tre Coggins led the Titans scoring 31 points and grabbing 8 rebounds in 47 minutes. Kyle Allman scored 27 points for CSF, Jackson Rowe scored 8 points and grabbed 8 rebounds, and Lionheart Leslie scored 9 points before fouling out. Cal State Fullerton ended up covering the point spread in their game as they were favored by 5.5 and won by 6.
Washington is 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 home games, 8-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 1-4 against the spread following a loss. Cal State Fullerton is 16-36-1 against the spread in their last 53 road games, 1-4 against the spread against the Pac-12, and 0-4 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread.
This looks like a lot of points for a team that can’t defend so I will take the double-digits and Cal State Fullerton.
