The UC-Riverside Highlanders and the Wright State Raiders meet in college basketball action from the Dollar Loan Center on Tuesday.

The UC-Riverside Highlanders will be looking to build on their 72-65 win over Weber State last time out. Zyon Pullin leads the Highlanders in scoring with 15.5 PPG along with 5 RPG and 3 APG as the only double-digit scorer for the Highlanders coming into this game. Lachlan Olbrich has 9 PPG with a team-high 6.2 RPG to lead UC-Riverside on the glass while Flynn Cameron has a team-high 3.5 APG to lead UC-Riverside in assists. As a team, UC-Riverside is averaging 75.2 PPG on 46.3% shooting from the field, 35% from three and 63.2% from the foul line this season.

The Wright State Raiders will hope to keep the ball rolling after a 77-61 win over Abilene Christian last time out. Trey Calvin leads Wright State in scoring and assists with 24 PPG and 5.5 APG while Amari Davis has 15.8 PPG and a team-high 6.2 RPG to lead the Raiders on the glass so far this season. AJ Braun also has 9.8 PPG and Brandon Noel has 9.2 PPG and 6.2 RPG up to this point in the year. As a team, Wright State is averaging 85.2 PPG on 54.3% shooting from the field, 32.4% from three and 64.4% from the foul line this season.

UC-Riverside is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win while the over is 11-1 in their last 12 games overall. Wright State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 9-4 in their last 13 Tuesday games.

I get the case to be made for either side here, but I’m looking at Wright State in this one. I will give UC-Riverside props for the schedule they’ve played to this point, but Wright State has just performed better up to this point and side-by-side, I just feel like the Raiders are the better and more efficient team on offense. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but I’d lean Wright State here.
