The CSU Fullerton Titans and Cal Poly Mustangs meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Mott Athletics Center.

The CSU Fullerton Titans could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The CSU Fullerton Titans are averaging 73.3 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 72.3 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Kyle Allman is averaging 18.5 points and 2.9 rebounds while Khalil Ahmad is averaging 17.7 points and 1.2 assists. Jackson Rowe is the third double-digit scorer and Austen Awosika is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The CSU Fullerton Titans are shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 69.9 percent from the free throw line. The CSU Fullerton Titans are allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.5 rebounds per game. The CSU Fullerton Titans have lost eight of their last nine road games.

The Cal Poly Mustangs also need a win here after losing eight of their last nine games. The Cal Poly Mustangs are averaging 65.1 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 72.1 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Donovan Fields is averaging 16.7 points and 4.7 assists while Mark Crowe is averaging 11.2 points and 3.9 rebounds. Marcellus Garrick is the third double-digit scorer and Jakub Niziol is dishing 1.3 assists. The Cal Poly Mustangs are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 65.8 percent from the free throw line.

The Titans are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Mustangs are 16-41 ATS in their last 57 home games, 13-38-1 ATS in their last 52 vs. Big West and 22-52-2 ATS in their last 76 games overall. The Titans are 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Cal Poly SLO and 17-5 ATS in the last 22 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Titans last 4 road games. The over is 19-7 in Mustangs last 26 home games.

The Cal Poly Mustangs have fallen off a cliff over the last month or so, as they've lost eight of their last nine games and are being outscored by an average of 13.8 points while shooting just 38.1 percent in their last five games. Cal Poly is also just 5-10 ATS this season and 0-4 ATS at home. The CSU Fullerton Titans have been a bit of hit or miss all year, but they have won each of the last five meetings against Cal Poly rather easily and head into this game shooting the ball well. You're sitting on a pile of cash if you've blindly faded Cal Poly the last three seasons. I'll side with the Titans on the road.

Pick:
Cal State Fullerton -7.5
