The Cal Poly Mustangs and CSU Fullerton Titans meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Titan Gym.

The Cal Poly Mustangs hope to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Cal Poly Mustangs are averaging 63.7 points on 40.4 percent shooting and allowing 73 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Donovan Fields is averaging 16.1 points and 4.2 assists while Marcellus Garrick is averaging 10 points and 2.7 rebounds. Mark Crowe is grabbing 4.4 rebounds and Jakub Niziol is dishing 1.1 assists. The Cal Poly Mustangs are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 62.8 percent from the free throw line. The Cal Poly Mustangs are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.5 rebounds per game. The Cal Poly Mustangs have lost 10 of their last 11 road games.

The CSU Fullerton Titans look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 11 games. The CSU Fullerton Titans are averaging 70.7 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 72.1 points on 43 percent shooting. Kyle Allman is averaging 17.9 points and 3.1 rebounds while Khalil Ahmad is averaging 17.9 points and 1.4 assists. Jackson Rowe is the third double-digit scorer and Austen Awosika is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The CSU Fullerton Titans are shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70.4 percent from the free throw line. The CSU Fullerton Titans are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The CSU Fullerton Titans have won their last five home games.

The Mustangs are 6-18-2 ATS in their last 26 road games, 12-39-1 ATS in their last 52 vs. Big West and 14-37-2 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The Titans are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Big West, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Mustangs are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Cal St. Fullerton and 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Titans last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Mustangs last 7 road games.

It's no secret the Cal Poly Mustangs have had their struggles all season, but they're coming off a solid win that should build on their confidence and six of their seven covers this season have come on the road. The CSU Fullerton Titans aren't exactly tearing things up, as they're winning by just 3.9 points at home this season and have been in a lot of close games. CSU Fullerton is also just 2-6 ATS at home and 9-16 ATS on the season. The Titans are also just 5-6 ATS as a favorite and this will be the first time this season where they've been a double-digit favorite. There's much better options on Thursday's card, but if forced to pick, I'd want Cal Poly and the boatload of points.

Pick:
Cal Poly +13
