UC-Santa Barbara is listed as a 3.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 140.5 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-Santa Barbara’s 65-64 win over Hawaii back on January 26th, 2023, made it back-to-back wins and wins in 5 of the last 6 meetings for the Gauchos.


Hawaii is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. UC-Santa Barbara is 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games overall and 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 11-1 in their last 12 games overall.


I’m leaning towards UCSB here. The Warriors are a solid group but more often than not are a different team once you take them off of the island. The Gauchos are picking it up in a big way, especially offensively and as much as I like Hawaii, I’m not sure they can hold UCSB down or keep up for a full 40 minutes. Give me UC-Santa Barbara here.
