Cal State Northridge vs. Yale - 01/05/2019 NCAA BB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Yale Bulldogs pay a visit to the Cal State Northridge Matadors in a non-conference college basketball tilt.

The surging Yale Bulldogs have racked up wins in seven of eight after routing Kennesaw State 92-65 on Wednesday as a 21 point home favorite.

Yale jumped to a 13 point lead at the half and never took their foot off of the gas behind a huge 54.1%-33.3% shooting advantage.

Alex Copeland and Paul Atkinson led the Bulldogs offensive explosion with 16 points each with Atkinson posting five pulls while Miye Oni added 15 points, four boards and six helpers.

Azar Swain gave Yale another 13 points with Jordan Bruner adding eleven points, nine rebounds and seven assists while Trey Phills contributed eight points.

The Cal State Matadors look to get back in the win column after a 65-65 loss at San Diego State on Tuesday put an end to a three game winning streak. Cal State Northridge took a 32-21 lead after 20 minutes but could not get stops in the second half.

Lamine Diane led all scorers with 23 points, 14 rebounds, three steals and two blocks on 9-23 from the floor and 5-5 at the line to carry the load for the Matadors.

Terrell Gomez and Rodney Henderson Jr. gave CSN ten points each on 7-22 shooting while Michael Ou and Darius Brown II combined for 15 points, ten boards and eight assists.

Yale Bulldogs are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 road games vs. a team with a losing home record and Yale Bulldogs are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record. CSN Matadors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and CSN Matadors are 19-42-3 ATS in their last 64 non-conference games and CSN Matadors are 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 home games.

I give Yale the advantage but I don’t think I’ll touch this spread…

CS Northridge +10

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
