UC-Irvine is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. UC-Riverside is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m backing the Highlanders here. UC-Riverside is simply peaking at the right time and is starting to heat up and while I like this UC-Irvine team and their big game experience, I just think that home court, senior night and the Highlanders’ current momentum carries them to a win and cover in this one.
