The CSU Fullerton Titans and UC Santa Barbara Gauchos meet Friday in the college basketball Big West Tournament at the Honda Center.

The CSU Fullerton Titans look for another win after beating UC Davis in overtime on Thursday. The CSU Fullerton Titans are averaging 72.6 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 70.9 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Kyle Allman is averaging 17.8 points and 3.1 rebounds while Khalil Ahmad is averaging 17.8 points and 1.3 assists. Jackson Rowe is the third double-digit scorer and Austen Awosika is grabbing 4.9 rebounds. The CSU Fullerton Titans are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 70 percent from the free throw line. The CSU Fullerton Titans are allowing 30.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.5 rebounds per game. The CSU Fullerton Titans have won five of their last eight non-home games.

The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos look for another win after escaping CSU Northridge on Thursday. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are averaging 73.9 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 66.1 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Ar'Mond Davis is averaging 13.1 points and 5.9 rebounds while Devearl Ramsey is averaging 12.1 points and 2.7 rebounds. Amadou Sow is the third double-digit scorer and JaQuori McLaughlin is grabbing 2.7 rebounds. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 71.8 percent from the free throw line. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are allowing 30.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.7 rebounds per game. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos have won five of their last seven non-home games.

The Titans are 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 Friday games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Big West and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Gauchos are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Big West and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Titans are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the favorite is 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings. The under is 35-16 in Gauchos last 51 vs. Big West. The under is 40-16 in Titans last 56 vs. Big West.

UC Santa Barbara smoked the Titans in the last meeting, shooting 50 percent from the field and had four players in double figures. The CSU Fullerton Titans are not only coming off an overtime game, so tired legs could be a thing come second half, but they're just 3-11 ATS as an underdog this season. The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos are shooting nearly 46 percent from the field and over 40 percent from three in their last five games. I have to lay the small chalk with the Gauchos.

Pick:
UC Santa Barbara -2
