The Cal Poly Mustangs and Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Stan Sheriff Center.

The Cal Poly Mustangs could use a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The Cal Poly Mustangs are averaging 63.8 points on 40.4 percent shooting and allowing 72.5 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Donovan Fields is averaging 16 points and 4.3 assists while Mark Crowe is averaging 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds. Marcellus Garrick is grabbing 2.6 rebounds and Jakub Niziol is dishing 1.2 assists. The Cal Poly Mustangs are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 62.2 percent from the free throw line. The Cal Poly Mustangs are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.4 rebounds per game. The Cal Poly Mustangs have lost five of their last six road games.

The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors could also use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are averaging 70.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Eddie Stansberry is averaging 111.7 points and 2.7 rebounds while Jack Purchase is averaging 11.6 points and 2.1 assists. Zigmars Raimo is the third double-digit scorer and Brocke Stepteau is dishing three assists. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 68.9 percent from the free throw line. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.1 rebounds per game. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have won six of their last eight home games.

The Mustangs are 6-16-2 ATS in their last 24 road games, 13-41-1 ATS in their last 55 vs. Big West and 14-35-2 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. Big West and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Mustangs are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Hawaii and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 7-3 in Warriors last 10 vs. Big West. The under is 3-0-1 in Mustangs last 4 Thursday games.

The Cal Poly Mustangs have been fade material dating back to last season, as you're sitting on a pile of cash just blindly fading this team over the years. Cal Poly has had issues scoring the basketball on the road and is losing this games by an average of 8.8 points. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have quietly been one of the better home teams the last couple of years and are more than capable of shooting a team out of the gym. The number seems to be a little steep, but I'm going off that Cal Poly is just awful at covering numbers. So, it's Hawaii or pass for me.

Pick:
Hawaii -15
