The Sacramento State Hornets and Idaho Vandals meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Cowan Spectrum.

The Sacramento State Hornets could use a win to get a game above a .500 record. The Sacramento State Hornets are averaging 70.2 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 68 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Marcus Graves is averaging 16.3 points and 5.3 assists while Joshua Patton is averaging 13.6 points and 6.2 rebounds. Ethan Esposito is grabbing 4.4 rebounds and Izayah Mauriohooho-Le'afa is dishing 2.3 assists. The Sacramento State Hornets are shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 67.9 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento State Hornets are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The Sacramento State Hornets have lost four of their last six road games.

The Idaho Vandals could use a win for the first time since January 3. The Idaho Vandals are averaging 67.2 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 76.1 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Trevon Allen is averaging 13.4 points and three assists while Cameron Tyson is averaging 13.3 points and two rebounds. Jared Rodriguez is grabbing 6.3 rebounds and Scott Blakney is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Idaho Vandals are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 71.4 percent from the free throw line. The Idaho Vandals are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game. The Idaho Vandals have lost their last six home games.

The Hornets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win, 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The Vandals are 5-17 ATS in their last 22 home games, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 vs. Big Sky and 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Vandals last 5 overall. The under is 38-18 in Hornets last 56 road games.

The Sacramento State Hornets beat Idaho by 21 points a little over a month ago and should be able to do similar here. The Idaho Vandals haven't only gone almost two months without a victory, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 17 points and are 7-18 ATS on the season. With failed covers in 17 of their last 22 home games as well, there's just no reason to even entertain the thought of backing the Idaho Vandals. It's either Sacramento State or pass.

Pick:
Sacramento State -7.5
