The CSU Fullerton Titans and UC Santa Barbara Gauchos meet Saturday in college basketball action at The Thunderdome.

The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are averaging 73.3 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 65 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Ar'Mond Davis is averaging 13.6 points and 5.5 rebounds while Amadou Sow is averaging 11.2 points and 6.3 rebounds.

The Titans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The Gauchos are 16-7 ATS in their last 23 Saturday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos will have revenge on their mind after losing to the Titans by 21 points when these teams met last month. The CSU Fullerton Titans are just 2-8 ATS this season when an underdog of at least three points, and they're losing by an average of four points on the road this season. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos have shown flashes of putting things together lately, especially at home where they shoot 46.6 percent from the field and win by an average of 9.1 points. The Gauchos were kind to us a couple of days ago in that blowout win over Hawaii, I'll take them again at home and the reasonable chalk. 

Pick:
UC Santa Barbara -4.5
