The Brown Bears and San Diego State Aztecs meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Viejas Arena.

The Brown Bears are averaging 72.5 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 66.9 points on 38.3 percent shooting. Desmond Cambridge is averaging 17.3 points and 3.4 rebounds while Tamenang Choh is averaging 10.8 points and 2.9 assists. Brandon Anderson is the third double-digit scorer and Joshua Howard is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Brown Bears are shooting 30.6 percent from beyond the arc and 68 percent from the free throw line. The Brown Bears are allowing 25.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.7 rebounds per game. The Brown Bears have lost four of their last six road games.

The San Diego State Aztecs look for another victory after winning five of their last eight games. The San Diego State Aztecs are averaging 77.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 72.7 points on 42 percent shooting. Devin Watson is averaging 16.5 points and 5.4 assists while Jalen McDaniels is averaging 13.9 points and 7.1 rebounds. Matt Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Jeremy Hemsley is dishing 2.5 assists. The San Diego State Aztecs are shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free throw line. The San Diego State Aztecs are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.2 rebounds per game. The San Diego State Aztecs have won five of their last six home games.

The Bears are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Aztecs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The under is 7-0 in Bears last 7 overall. The under is 6-2 in Aztecs last 8 overall. 

The San Diego State Aztecs are heating up offensively, as they're shooting 49.1 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from three in their last five games. San Diego State is also outscoring teams by an average of 19 points at home this season and has been one of the better covering home teams dating back to the end of last year. Assuming SDSU continues to shoot the ball well, this win should come rather easy considering the Brown Bears aren't the best offensive team in the world and have been held to 67 or less points in three of their last five games.

Pick:
San Diego State Aztecs -10
