The San Jose State Spartans and Pacific Tigers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Alex G. Spanos Center. The San Jose State Spartans look for their ninth win. The Pacific Tigers look for their sixth win.

The San Jose State Spartans are averaging 70.1 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 39.8 percent shooting. Omari Moore is averaging 14.5 points and 4.6 assists, while Sage Tolbert III is averaging 11 points and 8.7 rebounds. Alvaro Cardenas is dishing 3.2 assists and Trey Anderson is grabbing 3.5 rebounds. The San Jose State Spartans are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 67.8 percent from the free throw line. The San Jose State Spartans are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game.

The Pacific Tigers are averaging 76.9 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 75.4 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Jordan Ivy-Curry is averaging 12 points and 1.8 assists, while Tyler Beard is averaging 10.9 points and 2.6 rebounds.

The Spartans are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Tigers are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 10-28-1 ATS in their last 39 games overall. The over is 13-3 in Spartans last 16 road games. The over is 12-4 in Tigers last 16 overall. The favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

There’s not a lot of separation between these teams, but I do think it’s fair to say the Pacific Tigers have the edge at home, and they do have more scoring depth. The San Jose State Spartans have also had issues on the road, where they lose by an average of 6.3 points. San Jose State is also losing by an average of 6.8 points as an underdog. I’ll lay the bucket with the Tigers.
