The UC-Irvine Anteaters and the Cal Poly Mustangs meet in college basketball action from the Mott Athletics Center on Monday night Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


UC-Irvine is listed as a 10.5-point road favorite with a ML price of -650. The total for this game is set at 130.5 points.


Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

UC-Irvine’s 55-54 win over Cal Poly back on February 9th, 2023, made it 20 wins in the last 23 meetings for the Anteaters.


UC-Irvine is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Cal Poly is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.


I’m sticking with the under here. I just don’t trust Cal Poly offensively against a rock solid UC-Irvine defense, especially when scoring 60 points has been a chore for the Mustangs this season. I just think that this is a game that finishes in the 120s, so give me the under.
