The UC Davis Aggies look for another win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The UC Davis Aggies are averaging 63.7 points on 41.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.5 points on 46.1 percent shooting. TJ Shorts II is averaging 14.2 points and five rebounds while Siler Schneider is averaging 10.7 points and 2.6 rebounds. Joe Mooney is dishing one assist and Matt Neufeld is grabbing three rebounds.

The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Aggies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 home games. The Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in UC Davis and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Aggies last 8 overall. The over is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 overall.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are a team we've backed a lot at home this season, but on the road they're just 2-5 SU, 4-7 ATS when you throw in neutral games and are losing by an average of 6.9 points. The home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between Hawaii and UC Davis. The UC Davis Aggies have had their issues as well, but they've picked things up at home recently where they've won four of their last five games. In pretty much in a toss-up game, I'm backing UC Davis at home, even if it's more of a fade toward Hawaii on the road than anything else.
