The Wildcats are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games and 4-17 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Mustangs are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Wildcats last 8 Friday games. The under is 9-4 in Mustangs last 13 overall.
The Weber State Wildcats continue to get waxed whenever they take the floor, as their defensive effort is poor and the offense lacks scoring depth. Weber State is a mess defensively, and it gets worse on the road, where it loses by an average of 16 points. The Cal Poly Mustangs are playing their best ball of the season right now, and that should carry over at home. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
