Long Beach State is 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games following an ATS win. UC-Davis is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 12-4-1 in their last 17 games following a loss.


I’m leaning towards Long Beach State here. This game could honestly go either way, but in a game like that, you’re looking for any sort of edge you can find and for me, it’s that Long Beach State has won three straight meetings and come into this game in slightly better form. I think if UC-Davis wins this one, this could come down to the last shot. Give me the Beach and the points here.
