The Long Beach State 49ers and UC Davis Aggies meet Saturday in college basketball action at The Pavilion.

The Long Beach State 49ers could use a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Long Beach State 49ers are averaging 73 points on 42.1 percent shooting and allowing 79.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Deishuan Booker is averaging 18 points and 4.6 assists while Temidayo Yussuf is averaging 12.4 points and 7.1 rebounds. Bryan Alberts is the third double-digit scorer and KJ Byers is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Long Beach State 49ers are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 69.2 percent from the free throw line. The Long Beach State 49ers are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Long Beach State 49ers have lost four of their last six road games.

The UC Davis Aggies look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The UC Davis Aggies are averaging 63.3 points on 42.5 percent shooting and allowing 68.7 points on 46 percent shooting. TJ Shorts II is averaging 14.7 points and 5.1 rebounds while Joe Mooney is averaging 10.2 points and 2.5 rebounds. Siler Schneider is dishing one assist and Matt Neufeld is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The UC Davis Aggies are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 71.9 percent from the free throw line. The UC Davis Aggies are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.5 rebounds per game. The UC Davis Aggies have won five of their last six home games.

The 49ers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss. The Aggies are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Big West and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The 49ers are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in UC Davis and the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 35-16 in Aggies last 51 home games. The over is 4-0 in 49ers last 4 overall.

The UC Davis Aggies are riding a four-game winning streak and have caught fire offensively. The Long Beach State 49ers are real hit or miss offensively, which has led to the losing stretch, and they're losing on the road by an average of 10.5 points while shooting just 40.9 percent from the field. These games have been very high scoring in the past and the home team has been on the winning side six of the last nine times. I'll ride the hot hand and back UC Davis and the small chalk. 

Pick:
UC Davis -3.5
