Thursday college basketball features the Cal State-Bakersfield Roadrunners facing the Central Michigan Chippewas.

After losing a tight game to TCU to begin the year the Cal State-Bakersfield Roadrunners routed sub-division Antelope Valley 111-75. Cal State-Bakersfield lit up the scoreboard behind almost 60% marksmanship and a +19 on the backboards.

Ricky Holden poured in 25 points on 8-8 from the field including a 5-5 mark on threes while Justin Edler-Davis added 19 points and eight rebounds on 7-10 shooting. Greg Lee gave UCSB 13 points on 6-9 followed by a combined 21 points from James Suber and Jarkell Joiner.

The Central Michigan Chippewas improved to 2-0 following a one sided 101-60 victory against visiting Chicago State as a 17 point favorite. Central Michigan rode 49.3% shooting and 17 more looks at the basket to easily subdue the 35.7% shooting Cougars who committed 22 turnovers.

Larry Austin Jr. led the Chippewas with 17 points and nine assists with Matt Beachler tossing in another 16 points. The Chips received eleven points from Kevin McKay and Romelo Burrell followed by a combined 19 points from Dallas Morgan and David DiLeo.

Cal State Bakersfield are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 games overall and over is 10-4 in Cal State Bakersfield last 14 overall and over is 7-3 in Cal State Bakersfield last 10 non-conference games. Central Michigan are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games and over is 39-18-2 in Central Michigan last 59 overall.

The spread says this is a tossup and I think we see a nip and tuck game in the final minutes…

Pick:
Cal State-Bakersfield -1

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.
